Analysis: records/CAR

| No Comments

The article, Long-gone lead factories leave poisons in nearby yards, by USA Today is a good example of a records/CAR article.

The article written by Alison Young describes how the EPA failed to tell people about or take action on many former lead smelting sites which the EPA has apparently known about for years. The soil in many people's yards and in parks was found to contain potentially dangerous levels of lead.

Young uses tips on how to make yards safer, video interviews with parents who have children who play in their lead-filled back yards, an interactive map which states where smelters once were, and site-related documents.

In order to write this article, Young had to be technology savvy. She needed to be able to search for sites, find pictures, and create/search for video interviews on the topic.
