This is an example writing news brief writing activity, used in the second week of an "Introduction to Journalism" undergraduate news reporting course. Students are provided with a set of facts and instructed to write a short news brief applying the inverted pyramid story structure. This activity can be adapted with facts related to whatever is a current major news story, such as in this case President Obama's final State of the Union address in 2016.
