Press Corps Assignment
- Read a recent news article that analyzes an event with global reach—something where the UN might or should be involved. This could be terrorism, refugees, war, public health, or something else that interests you.
- Then, interview one or two of your school’s delegates (avoid close friends) about their assigned country’s position on this development. Ask open-ended questions for better responses. Quotes should be attributed to “the representative from [country],” but you should also include a simple list of your sources (URLs and names) at the end of your story.
- Finally, write a story of 200 to 300 words that blends good quotes from your interview and background information from the story you read to report how that country might handle the situation. Use the background guide as a tool to write your article. You should find yourself cutting unnecessary words and quotes to meet the word limit. Try to condense the story as much as possible while covering the Who, What, Where, When, Why and How.
