Your post should be between 200 and 300 words about something or someone REAL and in AP style, with the story format you feel best suits your topic.
Include at least three interactive elements. One must be a photo. (Use the “Add Media” icon in the editing dashboard to upload photos, graphics & videos.) One must be a hyperlink. (Copy the URL of the website you want to link to, highlight the text in your post you want to turn into a hyperlink, click on the chain icon in the editing dashboard and follow the prompts to complete your hyperlink.) The third is something different of your choice — a survey, a question for readers to answer in the comment box, a graph or whatever you think will enhance your story and give your readers added value.
Copy and paste the URL of your post into this Turnitin box.
6. When grading, I’ll consider AP style, how you adapted your newswriting skills to Web writing and the three interactive elements you used.
