April 29th Class + Blog work

Hi All,

Happy Spring Break! I wanted to send this out as promised.

We will be discussing the EVOLVING JOURNALISM chapter 11 when we return. You will receive your exam back at the end of our class.

Week 13 – Last chance for extra credits. I’ve given out so many options over the semester. Remember, you have to EARN them not just receive it.

The Blog:

Last week, I sent out two links for WETRANSFER, please download them ASAP as they’re gone in a few days.

https://we.tl/t-1QE3GFtgop

https://we.tl/t-J2KCl7S6y6

The Blog:

You’re choosing 2 out of the 4. ONLY 2 out of the 4. I repeat 2 out of the 4. You CAN do the other 2 as a separate blog and earn extra credit.

Prompts:

— Use all you’ve learned thus far, and apply it to your films.

— Use Rodman’s text and a few outside sources.

— Compare/contrast the two films

— Discuss one character from each, compare them.

— Add whatever you feel is necessary

Word Count: 750-1000 words

Small yet important note:

This is your last post before the final post. You should be honing your skills and in turn this should be one of your best posts.

I will be sending out a final post soon.

Happy Viewing.

Best,

Professor Dunphy

Reminder & Next Exam

Hi Everyone,

Here’s that reminder:

Tuesday, April 9th
3:00pm-5:00pm
3127 Ingersoll Hall
SLAY TV 
Be there.
If you have class at 3:40 come for the first 39 minutes or so. If you have class that ends at 3:30, come right after. This is for the snow day… and truth is — you never know who you will meet… and how this will help you in the future. It may not but it could? Stranger things have happened.
Those who are struggling, attendance issues, sleeping issues (there are a bunch) and/or doing well too should be there.
Exam #2:
Next week will be our second exam, it’ll start promptly at 12:50 so please be on time. The exam will be one hour. #2 pencil.
There will be True/False, Multiple choice, and Matching.
65 Questions.
Afterwards, you’re done so head on home.
However! I will be putting up your assignment on the blog with a wetransfer link that day or evening, and the link will only be good for one week — so make sure you take the time to download it.
Two More Blogs:
One blog will be due after Spring Break, the other will be the final blog — sometime in May, probably for the last class.
Our final exam is on Monday, May 20th from 10:30-12:30pm. Room TBD. Chapters TBD.
See you later today!!
Have a good one.
PD
