The basics of journalism, including laws and ethics, freedom of the press and the principles of journalistic writing, are powerful tools. In the early 1970s, two Washington Post reporters uncovered a scandal known as Watergate and eventually a president was forced to resign. In this course, you’ll learn how to generate story ideas, conduct an interview and then put it all together as you write both news and sports stories. You’ll also be introduced to feature writing and editorials. You’ll be part of a team of students who will write articles for an online newspaper.
