Weekly Article

  • Each of you is writing an SOW, POW or AOW article. Your area has been assigned in your assignments sheet, not the ladder. 
  • https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1FWmFbdAeDYjnl6irp23VhnH-Lmkz73Sfub_y6LMlKNg/edit?usp=sharing
  • Remember these must be saved in the articles online folder on Google Drive. The file name should be your last name your first name and the article name. For example, espinola olivia SOW week 3.
    https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1CAb_GMwKnt1uKqoFnIbHLlYPi6xOY1t0?usp=sharing
  • You must talk to the teacher/coach and the person they select. Please tell them this does not have to be their best student or athlete but is used to get someone publicity who might not usually get it. Get at least one quote from each. Do not ask the student how they feel about getting picked. Ask them about their year or season so far.
  • You will also find, edit and insert a picture for the article. If it is a freshman we do not have their school portraits yet so you will need to take a picture with a camera, not your phone. For sports, we only have game pics of football, volleyball, and boys soccer but we have head shots of all athletes.
  • Try to physically talk to the interviewees as you will get better quotes. If you must use email there is a list of coaches in the student rosters folder in the Winnada folder. DO NOT contact any teachers/coaches by phone.
  • Examples:
    • http://lowryhighschool.com/?s=Athlete+of+the+Week
    • http://lowryhighschool.com/?s=Student+of+the+Week
    • http://lowryhighschool.com/?s=Performer+of+the+Week

Others: SOW, POW AND AOW Articles and infographics
