Recap of Week 1, Spring 2015

The class has met twice so far. Here are some important things to keep in mind.

Winter Is Coming

First of all, PLEASE STAY WARM!

ATTENDANCE COUNTS, starting Tuesday, Jan. 13. Nothing was lost if you missed class on Jan. 6 or 8, but from now on, you will lose points when you come late or you miss class.

You really need to check the Course Schedule page once a week. Assigned readings and due dates for homework are posted there. I might not remind you when you have a deadline, and it’s your responsibility to hand in all assigned work on time. Late work will not be accepted.

I expect you to know everything that is written in the Syllabus, so please read it carefully.

Please be sure to read ALL of the assigned readings BEFORE class on Tuesday. Find them on the Course Schedule page under Week 2.

NEWSROOM SHIFTS will start on Tuesday, Jan. 20. Details about shifts will be discussed in class next week.

TWITTER SCAVENGER HUNT: This is worth 10 percent of your course grade, so please check your calendars and the assignment itself (there’s a link on the Course Schedule page under Week 3) to make sure you are well prepared to do a good job. More about this next week in class.
