WRITING FOR TELEVISION, RADIO, AND NEW MEDIA has been the leading work in its field for more than fifty years. Its frequently updated revisions, including the eleventh edition, combine the best principles and examples of the past with those of contemporary practice. Its thorough coverage of concepts, approaches, and techniques concentrates on the key media formats of commercials; news and sports; documentaries; reality programs; talk shows; interviews; music programs; corporate, educational, and children's formats; and drama and sitcoms. The text also presents basic information that writers need to know about production techniques, demographics, copyrights, and career opportunities. New material on social media allows today's students to understand the continued importance of clear writing and shows them how their digital skills can transfer to career opportunities.

The design of the Instructor's Manual is based on Problem Based Learning (PBL) criteria and is the binding element for curriculum structure, the writing examples, and expectations as related to student presentations in a classroom learning context. Writing students make materials for presentation and must experience the presentation of their materials in order to complete their own developmental journey for their work. This Instructor's Manual is designed to help the teacher and student connect the writing and presentation experience to the text. It includes chapter outlines, lecture suggestions, and test questions.
