Blog Posts Due By Thursday….

Leave a comment

I’ve noticed that quite a few of you are not up-to-date on your blog posts. I’m extending the deadline for all your post to be completed to the end of the day Thursday. After that, you’ll lose a letter grade a day for each day you are late.

Also, here are the details on the Ethics Blog post:

BLOG ASSIGNMENT #9: Journalism ethics. Is transparency a good thing? Is it possible to be transparent and unbiased in your reporting? Write a 300-500 word blog entry analyzing some of the ethical issues we discussed in class regarding transparency.

We’re going to keep it simple and use the #umassjournalism hashtag.

Remember, your Twitter/Storify assignment is:

For those who are in the Boston area this weekend can/should tweet from a spot along the race route and those not in Boston area can curate/tweet about what they’re seeing and hearing on TV and the Web. And, put together a storify of your tweets when  you’re done.

 

Have fun,

Steve

I bumped the date for your blog first drafts to April 17:

LAB:  First Drafts due at the start of class.  I’ll review each team’s projects.

Also, don’t forget about your next Twitter assignment:

Twitter Assignment #8: Find one example a day of non-traditional video storytelling and tweet it out to the #umassjournalism hashtag — with commentary. One tweet a day each day before next class.

Hi folks –

We’ll talk more about this in class.
