Confessions of COMM 200

Class 1/31

Filed under: Uncategorized — confessionsofcomm200 @ 6:14 am

Prof. Crowe started the class by returning assignments she graded over the weekend.

We then reviewed the First Amendment, which states:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Prof. Crowe stressed that it is important we know the First Amendment well, as it will be on an upcoming test.

We also received two handouts, one labeled “AP Stylebook entries you should know,” and the other labeled “Meet Mr. Comma.” Study these handouts well; the material from them will most likely appear on the next quiz.

The class then shifted gears as we shared the ledes we wrote from the weekend’s homework. Short and concise was the idea, but do not forget the who, what, when, where and how.

We then used http://www.washingtonpost.com to find different articles online and examine the ledes they contained. The articles’ subjects included the Egypt riots, Prince George county politics, and dead bank robbers.

We then worked in groups of two on an in-class assignment in which we formulated a story out of the notes that Prof. Crowe gave to us. Make sure to use your quotes wisely.

Homework:

If you already have a Twitter account, good for you! If not, time to set one up. The goal is for you to post “Hashtag the Campus,” an effort by the Social Media club at AU promoting the importance of social media, on your Twitter account. Check them out at their Twitter page to get the the necessary information. Make sure to tag Prof. Crowe in your post when you “hashtag the campus.”

 

We also received a handout titled “Homework for 2/3.” Refer to it for details.

Good Luck- Trey Dyer
