  • Photo ethics, editing and workflow

Note there is NO FORMAL CLASS MEETING on Thursday, January 31. You may use this time to work on your parking package or to come and work in the lab. I will be on site.

Assignments for Tuesday, February 5

  • Complete your parking package. Review the rubric as necessary and post on a unique child story page (parent is your main menu story page).  The upload should be completed BEFORE class begins.
  • LISTEN to this story on NPR and be prepared to discuss on Tuesday. Is there a future for long form journalism? Find credible sources to back up your opinions.
  • Read Chapters 3 and 4 in Briggs and, if you don’t have one, create a Twitter account. After we talk about long form journalism, we’ll consider the merits (and pitfalls) of crowdsourcing and microblogging.
