At the time of posting this pie chart (5:30 am on Monday), I’m hoping to be able to have a couple of additional blog posts ready by the time class begins this evening. Based on valuable feedback provided in last Friday’s end of week survey, I realize there remain a few points of confusion related to Activities and Projects. I will try to spell things out more clearly.
As for the lesson tonight, here’s how I hope for it to unfold:
Quick Announcements: Beginning at the bottom of the pie, I’d like to share a few brief thoughts and links (Poynter’s News Sense: The Building Blocks of News, and Activity and Project 1 details) before turning you guys loose for the Work and Research portion of the lesson.
Work and Research: Here you can continue researching the old news articles for the first activity or keep working with InDesign. I’m expecting everyone to use InDesign for the first project so this will be a useful chance for me to help those in need of individual assistance.
Survey Review and Next Reading: I’d like to spend a few minutes going over the survey results which should be in a blog post. For Wednesday, please read chapters 3 and 4 of the text and be prepared to discuss when class next begins.
