GENERAL ASSEMBLY SPRING 2012-NEW EXPECTATIONS-


Monthly Workshop

I will now be holding individual meetings with students who email me by/on the Wednesday prior to our Friday class, instead of lecturing. This way, I can address everyone's questions in a more efficient manner.


Weekly Submissions

From now on, I am expecting you to correct your previous submission in order to receive full marks. This means you will need to begin with the article you submitted on Tuesday, February 21st, 2012.


Correction Format

Copy/Paste your previous work+my comments on the SAME page, and correct the 2nd copy below. (For this week, both the original and corrected copy will appear under the February 21st submission, and so on, and so on...)

Grading

Those who do not correct their work, will receive at best, a B- for their work, and significantly less personalized feedback on their following submissions.


These changes will allow me to pay more attention to those willing to improve their writing, and have a common understanding with those satisfied with their current standing.


If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach me at zaberra@gmail.com.



Best,

Ms Isabelle Umugwaneza






Dear Journalism Majors,

As you may have noticed, I have been focusing on the content of your articles, and their relevance so far. For the coming week, I will focus on leads. Follow the link below if you are interested in getting a few pointers on how to write an effective lead. http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/735/05/ If you have any questions, you can reach me at zaberra@gmail.com.

Best, Isabelle Umugwaneza




Hello Again,

As you may have noticed, I have included a number of new abbreviations and symbols in my editing. Each time these abbreviations appear after a word, they mean:

inc:Incomplete sentence (A sentence that fails to deliver a clear message. A sentence that lacks a subject, verb, or thought) sva: Subject Verb Agreement (He have not) vt: Verb Tense (Three years ago, she start work for the company) (x): Missing word (~): Vague, or ambiguous phrase (A sentence or part of sentence that leaves the reader confused) (inap): Inappropriate use of a word (For example: suspected candidate-suspected has a criminal connotation)

I hope these abbreviations give you more ownership over your editing, and improve your writing through discovery and practice.

Best,

Isabelle Umugwaneza


Dear Journalism Majors,

For those of you who are wondering why their work has yet to be marked, check your history time stamp.

This tab allows me to see your latest edited work, and if the latest tag is past midnight, I will consider your work late.

I understand that some of you will finish your work right before midnight, and only make minor changes afterwards. However a lot of you made so many edits after midnight that I could not see how much work was "done" on time, as the history tab only allows you to go so far. Therefore your work was not marked, as it would be unfair to those who finished on time.

The reason why I check the history tab is that unfortunately, there has been attempts to "fudge" the displayed time stamp at the end of the article through editing. This kind of academic dishonesty leaves me no choice but to be strict on the matter.

To avoid any further confusion or frustration, please submit your latest edition by midnight, and leave your work as is, until corrected.

That said, I would like for you all to pay special attention to the following points:

1) Does my sentence make sense when I read it out loud?

2) Does this sentence have a clear message, or is it simply listing facts?

3) Can the reader extract useful information from this article that is not common knowledge? In order words, what valuable information does the reader extract from the article?

4) Does the body of my article fully support my title, and news angle with concrete examples?

5) Do I have a hook at the beginning of my article?

6) Is there any information the reader might not be familiar with, which requires a one line explanation? (I realize that not being from HK, I might be exceptionally ignorant on common issues and know very few celebrities, however I believe news stories should be "accessible" to all readers, and that brief explanations are a journalist's best friend-so use them!)

I will be posting more writing resources/examples on the discussion page. Feel free to ask me questions either on the discussion post, or via email.

To end on a positive note, here are some quotes you might appreciate as journalists in the making:

~ Journalism is organized gossip. ~

   Edward Egglestone


~ Journalism is the first rough draft of history. ~

   Unknown


~ Journalism is the ability to meet the challenge of filling space. ~

   Rebecca West
