Feb. 13-15. This week we will expand on our knowledge of the Five Ws and How for leads and begin writing complete news stories in inverted pyramid format. We will learn about AP Style and the AP Stylebook that are such a major part of journalistic writing. We will start to do AP style quizzes and we will get registered for Newsroom 101, an online course provided by the Department of Mass Communication and Communication Studies. This online course will prepare us for our mid-term and final exams and will help us to bring professional polish to our news writing. Your assignment for Thursday is to read the Newsroom 101 Instructions posted on joannebroadwatertowsonu.com. Upon completion, follow the directions and sign up for Newsroom 101. Our department has already paid for your course and you already have an account. You’ll find a link on the instructions page to reach the schedule of due dates for Newsroom 101 quizzes. Click through and get started. There are some warm-up quizzes due Friday, Feb. 16.
