Requirements of the Course: Weekly: -You must attend the class lecture. No excuses. Thursday night is never an excuse. We'll discuss information that you can't just get from a friend -One weekly KOMU daily shift (SHIFTS STARTS ON Monday, May 15th 2017) -Tweet news (often repeatedly) from your story while in the field -Produce web stories for KOMU.com -Write a brief report on the day's experience (Those in radio or alternative labs will have different requirements) Every Other Week: -One KOMU enterprise story on your beat (ENTERPRISES FIRST DUE DATE, TBA) Semester: -Write two papers, multiple drafts (Those in radio must still complete the two writing assignments) Grading Students will receive grades based as follows: 30%-Daily shift scores 30%-Enterprise shift scores 30%-Writing assignments 10%-Quizzes Newsroom scores are kept on a score sheet from which you will receive grade updates.
