Confessions of COMM 200

Midterm Day

Filed under: Uncategorized — confessionsofcomm200 @ 8:15 pm

Professor Crowe’s “evil” exam came and went and happily, everyone survived. Just as she had warned us, the midterm was an intense marathon of everything we learned so far. We first had to answer some AP style questions as well as questions about attribution and other topics covered in the textbook. In addition, we were asked to write a a nut graf, an obituary, a feature story, and what seemed like 300 leads, all in  a mere 75 minutes. At the very least, we can take solace in the fact that there is one less thing standing in the way of our Spring Breaks. Over break, remember to do the speech assignment which is due when we return. Tips for covering a speech are provided at the end of the AP style packet as well as in the textbook on page 106.

Enjoy your breaks!
