My First Edit

One of my first assignments for my Interactive Editing class was to edit an article that contained many errors. This assignment helped me understand what this class would consist of, and I also got a glance of the editor’s job. After going over this assignment with the class, I noticed many things I missed. I realized my headline was too vague, amongst other things. I plan to use my teacher’s advice while editing my following piece.

Ice Cream Edit

For this assignment, I edited an article about ice-cream. This article was very vague. There are many different points and possible topics in this piece. I decided to make the article mainly about Tyler, the Creator’s new ice cream flavor, and included supporting details about the ice cream industry.

Ryan Thomas ANC Edit

I edited my reporter, Ryan Thomas’s article on an Advisory Neighborhood Commission meeting she attended in September. This article was detailed and told the story in the order of the events that took place throughout the meeting. This piece needed better organization and a clear lead of the story that occurred at the ANC meeting. There were also some AP style mistakes I edited.

Convocation Edit

I edited my reporter’s article on The 153rd Howard University Opening Convocation on September 25th. This piece needed a shorter, more engaging lead and more focus. Overall, it was an excellent piece with great reporting.

Tia Lowe COVID – 19 Vignette

I edited my reporter, Tia Lowe’s article, on the effect COVID-19 has on Howard University Students and how we are coping. This was a good article, and I mainly changed the headline, a few stylistic choices, and grammar mistakes.
