Writing Intensive Teaching

Instructor provided feedback
 
Students indicate the lead author of each element in the work itself.
The team story is the centerpiece of 4804. Students research and pitch stories then spend eight days reporting the stories and a day or more producing them. The stories can go in many directions, and it is students' research which guides them there. For instance, a story on increased milk prices can focus on the consumer side or the producer side and examine what's driving those cost increases.
- Five team stories, assigned every other week beginning in week 4.
- Non-writing intensive assignments due as 1-page reports on newsrooms the students have worked in due every Friday for 12 weeks.
