qNewswriting on Deadlineq is filled with real-world newswriting exercises that prepare students for the stories they will cover on the job. Many of the exercises are based on actual events and most are designed to be written on a real deadline - in an hour or less. Each chapter focuses on a particular newspaper beat - police, courts, city hall - and opens with a set of tips for covering that specific beat. This is followed by a series of news writing exercises with a suggested deadline - anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Features Newswriting exercises give student the opportunity to write news stories based on actual events on a real deadline. Tips at the beginning of every chapter provide students with practical information on how to cover a specific newspaper beat.

Internet exercises allow students to use the Internet to do their own reporting and news writing. qBeyond the Classroomq feature in every chapter gives students examples of real-world stories they can cover.4, 2000: A 77-year-old Newtown Township woman is ...
