Post 4: Q & A with photo

Blog Post 4: Q & A with Photo due by 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 6
(Worth 50 points)

Find a relevant person with something to say about your topic and interview him/her. You can do the Q & A in person, by phone, email or online chat. Transcribe it. Edit Q & A for grammar/spelling. Decide how much of it to run. Write up a few sentences of introduction. Add hyperlinks. Post it online in a Q & A format with a photo of the person. Aim high and have a few back up plans. One of your backup plans should involve a physical place you can go to talk to people if no one responds to your emails or phone calls in time.

Grading Criteria:

  • Original reporting and effort in finding a good subject.
  • A headline that includes the person’s name so it can be found in a search.
  • Write a few sentences of introduction. (Who is the person? Why is she/he someone we should hear from? What does she/he have to say?)
  • Bold your questions so it is easier to read.
  • Q & A is edited for grammar and spelling.
  • Add hyperlinks to background information.
  • A photo of your subject, preferably one you take yourself. Add a photo credit that identifies the source of the photo.
  • Five key word tags. One should be the person’s name.
  • See grading rubric for specifics.
