Confessions of COMM 200

Valentine’s Day with Comm-200

Filed under: Uncategorized — confessionsofcomm200 @ 3:55 am

Class: 2/14/11


We began class on Valentine’s Day by sharing the leads and nut grafs of our profiles.  We heard all about “The Nan,” Kelsey’s cane-slinging, swearing and fierce grandma who can’t stand it when people are moving too slowly in front of her.

Professor Crowe encouraged us to pick just one small, little-known aspect of our subject to “hang” our profile on, and not to try to tell too many unrelated details about the person.

After we shared our work, Professor Crowe set the class into teams to write the lede and nut graf of a profile based on snippets of information about made-up subjects (and then handed out candy – thanks Professor!).

We learned about the creepy, childless parenting-book author who kept his house filled with toys, and the Hello Kitty-obsessed literature professor who lost a child.

As a Valentine’s Day gift, Professor Crowe didn’t assign any extra homework, and asked us to edit our profiles for the next class.
