Back-to-School: Story Ideas That Shine
Thursday, Aug. 24 — 2 p.m. Eastern
Finding fresh angles on familiar ground can be an annual challenge for education reporters. With this webinar, you’ll get smart tips from experienced journalists for great stories on the first day of school and beyond.
We’ll discuss novel ways of approaching the new academic year, from preschool through higher education. You’ll get ideas for unique profiles, for making the most of your publication’s multimedia resources, and for exploring a range of timely questions on the beat.
What are the hot issues for K-12 schools this fall? How are contentious current events playing out at colleges and universities? And where should you look for on-the-ground examples of federal education policy changes taking effect? We’ll explore answers to questions like these, plus give you time to pose some of your own.
