REQUIRED BOOKS AND MATERIALS
COLLEGE BOOKSTORE WEBSITE
Bring your flash drive to EVERY class and carry a reporter's notepad with you at all times. You never know when you'll come across a news story - an armed robbery or a fire, for instance - in progress.
ABSENCES, PLAGIARISM, ETC.
ABSENCES: Attendance will be taken and chronically absent students will see their grade in the class quickly drop. If you have to miss class and have a legitimate excuse, let me know. Also, if you miss class, it's up to YOU to find out what assignments you missed by checking with me or going to the Assignments Calendar.
LATENESS: Chronically late students will be dropped a letter grade.
LATE WORK: Deadlines are crucial. Unexcused late work will be dropped a letter grade.
COLLEGE PLAGIARISM POLICY
Students will produce several types of video reports for the class, including:
A person-on-the-street interview report
A profile of a person
A report on a student club
Coverage of an event on campus
All students will create their own blog or website that they will use to archive the videos they produce. Students will also create an online resume on their website or blog. Each student's website will be evaluated at the end of the semester as part of his/her final grade.
GRADES: Your final grade will be based on video reports assignments, quizzes, class participation and extra credit work. Writing assignments count the most.
You can earn extra credit by writing as many articles as possible
by becoming an editor.
