Finding Good Leads
Each student should examine the lead used by three different English-language news organizations for a breaking news story. Stick to the area that your group is monitoring. Cut and paste all three leads into your assignment and explain which one you think is best and why. Identify the source (i.e., the publisher) of each of the leads. Also, try to come up with an even better lead of your own, for instance by combining bits of the three that you're examining and/or by scrutinizing the stories themselves. Submit up to 300 words by noon on Friday, Oct. 21, by cutting and pasting online text, not an attachment. Make sure to include both your name and your group's name with your submission.
