Audience Sheet Covering a Sporting Event-Game story (Game you watched live)
  1. Choose a newspaper sports section (not The Pointer) you imagine your game story (for the game you watched live) will be published in. Consider the sport you are covering and the level. You may choose a local newspaper - if you covered a local (e.g., high school or university - Div 3 or small college) game - or a national newspaper if you covered a university (Div 1) or professional game.  You can use one of the papers from your sports section analysis, or you may choose a different paper, local or national.  In a reasonable paragraph, write down the name of the newspaper and give a summary of the sports section - its contents, style, and language. (See your sports section analysis sheet.)
  2. Write out responses to the four questions (bullet points) on page 28 of Seeing the Pattern. Responses should be thoughtful and address the purpose and context of the assignment. One or two casual sentences will not be enough.

Draft your audience questions (Word document) early and revise them as you draft. We will discuss these questions in class.
