I often draw comparisons between journalism and teaching, and that's because I think they are to a large degree doing the same job, just on different topics and to sometimes different audiences. hence this article about how to provide full coverage is I feel as relevant to educators to journalists. Are you telling the full story, or are you just quoting people in power. Have things changed as a result of the information or events? How do you find the right human sources to turn a set of facts into a full-fledged story? This article offers a framework to ensure completeness of coverage. "Devote some time to expanding your contacts book between stories, and reading up on newsgathering techniques for finding experts or case studies, witnesses or representatives - or the people that ultimately need to be held to account."
