“5.02 Source Materials: research” – FLVS Journalism 1 Assignment

For this assessment you must identify at least three sources you intend to consult about your topic, as well as at least two interview sources. These will be part of the requirement for your assignment. Make sure all of your sources are credible and will together provide a balanced view of your topic without showing your opinion.

Include a paragraph explaining your sources and your selections for interviewees, how you will contact them, and how they will add to the impartiality and credibility of your story. Add secondary options for people you will contact in case your first interview selections are not available when the time comes. Sometimes celebrities, major politicians, and others are unable to respond to requests in a timely manner.

Your instructor will approve your sources or give you feedback on how to improve them.

You do not need to conduct your research or interview yet. However, make sure ahead of time that those you plan to interview are willing and able to meet with you when the time comes.


I plan on using sources such as national news outlets, and Live Science for my research sources. I am going to interview a local oil company owner, as well as a FWC officer.  Any other interviewees might also include my Grandparents, and/or a few of my family members.
