JEA One Story: Overlooked


As women in Texas go to jail in record numbers, who’s watching out for their kids? No one, according to a recent investigation published by the Dallas Morning News.

This uncomfortable fact will be explored in Dallas with the One Story selection “Overlooked.”  Join us as we peel back the layers of this investigation by having your students read the compelling narrative, full of source documents, multimedia story forms and reporter notes that detail how the team uncovered the truth.

The Dallas Morning News investigative team will lead a panel discussion about the story at 9 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 17. Encourage your students to attend this session to hear more about the process and craft of investigative reporting.

One Story creates a shared experience for the convention. Attendees are encouraged to read these articles offering examples of quality writing, reporting and visual storytelling, and convention speakers are invited to consider showcasing One Story materials during their sessions.
