Confessions of COMM 200

To welcome us back from Spring Break, Professor Crowe handed back our midterms during Monday’s class. No one cried, and Professor said we all did especially well on the lede-writing section, so overall I think we can say the exam was a success. If not, then at least we still have seven weeks to get ready for the final!

In class, those who were able to cover a speech over break shared their writing with the class, and we saw how two writers covering the same speech can come up with very different (but equally good!) articles. Those who didn’t cover a speech over break must turn the article in on Thursday.

We then had some practice in covering a speech when we broke into groups to write about Barbara Ehrenreich’s commencement speech from 2009. Ehrenreich told aspiring journalists not to worry about the recession, because true journalists will always have a job as long as there is a story to tell.

See you  on Thursday!
