Good job this week (save for the few sleepers) and we made some solid progress on the work.
We will have to keep chugging along to keep up with the time crunch!
For Week 3:
Your TA should have contacted you by now – if not, email Erika, she can help.
Your blog address should be sent to your TA. If wordpress asks you to pay $$ to do something. DO NOT do it! Seriously, it should be free. If you want to pay– um… don’t.
I posted your blog assignment on September 12th – see the previous post for that information. All blogs are to be posted BEFORE 12pm Monday. That’s noon, not midnight. Midnight is 12am and then technically it would be 12 hours late or then it would be Tuesday 12am. Either way. It’s anytime BEFORE 12pm/NOON on Monday.
Chapter 3 – Books
Satire’s Brew pages XI-58 — take some notes on ideas that jumped out on you. Be prepared to discuss and bring the book. Two books in a week! O… M… G!!!
I have down on the syllabus Chapter 4 (Newspapers) but I think we’re going to run out of time. However, it will be covered the following week and on the exam which is on 10/6.
As you can see from the syllabus there’s a heavy reading load in the beginning then it tapers off as the semester moves along.
For Week 4: Newspapers + Magazines + another chapter of Satire’s Brew (and your first quiz!!) will be due. I know it is a lot but once again, this is college… you can do it! :)
Extra Credit Opt:
Continue to follow Keith Olbermann who is doing some incredible work on the NFL PR nightmare. Watch his stuff, react on your blog — 1000+ words on a few pieces (no summaries please) and you’ll earn an extra credit point. I should point out – the work has to be worthy!
Three total extra credit points are given.
If you are having serious issues with the work or need to meet with me, please feel free to email… I am more than willing to sit down and chat. However, please do not email me about what assignment is due or what reading is due… that is on the blog and on the syllabus/assignment sheet.
I believe that’s about it.
Have a good rest of your week.
