Hello Students of 1165!
Welcome to the class, and welcome to Mass Media! We’re going to have a great time so strap in! Let’s do this!!!!
In this first post you will receive PLENTY OF INFORMATION… so please read all of it.
Here are your syllabus & blog assignment files:
Your “TA” will be emailing you within the next day or so… check your Brooklyn College email or the email you have registered with the school. If you have not heard from your TA by Thursday email JESS, the in-class TA — her email is on the syllabus.
Create your blog at wordpress.com — very simple 4 steps!
When your TA emails you, you give them your blog address.
