Journalism Phases

 Phase One

News information comes from already published sources of information. For example, you get your information about a story from:
  • The Fairfield Ledger
  • The Weekly Reader
  • Local Newspapers
  • Fairfield-ia.villagesoup.com
  • Exploreseiowa.com
  • Cityoffairfieldiowa.com
  • Fairfieldacc.com
  • Local Websites
Remember to cite your source!


 Phase Two

Original news information is gather from an event or person you heard about from a secondary source. For example, you read about a music show on a website, you go to that show and write about it.


 Phase Three

You do investigative journalism where you put together an important story that no one else knew about. For example, by going through traffic records and talking with police officers, you learn that Fairfield issues fewer speeding tickets than the state average.
