Think back to the movie Chasing Mavericks. Assume you are a reporter and just heard about Jay’s amazing attempt to surf Mavericks and you want to do a news story on it. You have done your research (aka watched the movie) and have been given the task of interviewing Jay, Kim (Jay’s girlfriend), Frosty, and Kristy Moriarity (Jay’s Mom.) For the purposes of this assignment, we are going to assume that the movie is 100% factual (even though we know it is not).
Your tasks are as follows:
· Come up with 5 open ended questions for each of them (what is an open ended question?). NO QUESTIONS CAN BE REPEATED!!! Feel free to use the internet to do more research if you wish. (1 point each)
· Write a one paragraph introduction to the story. This should introduce the main character and a brief overview of the story. There is an example from “The Blind Side” at the bottom of this document (20 points)

EXAMPLE INTRODUCTION (Assuming “The Blind Side” is 100% factual)
The Baltimore Ravens used their first round draft Michael Oher, a right tackle out of the University of Mississippi. The 6 foot 4 in 315 pounder was chosen first by the Ravens because of the need to protect the team’s most important investment, the quarterback. Now, what makes Michael so special is not only the fact that he is an NFL first round draft pick, but also his path to the NFL. Michael, having very little athletic ability just a few short years ago, was taken in from the streets of Memphis by a local family and given the tools needed to succeed athletically and academically.
