Ex 1 (Setonian editors only)
- Part A: Personal Goals Statement. What do you want to get out of your education, and how can EL200 (and working on The Setonian) help you to reach those goals? Be specific -- "I can conduct a reader survey to learn about The Setonian's readership" is specific, while "I can work to improve The Setonian" is vague. Be clear, but be realistic, too. (See the goals statement as described in part A of EL200 Journalism Basics.doc for full details; 300 words; 50%)
- Part B: Instead of the Part B that the first-timers do, I'm asking editors to write Setonian Layout Instructions (screen caps and instructions, on a topic that we agree on in advance. See me.)
The course ID is 3414451, and the password is "min3sources" (a reminder of the fact that a good news story needs a minimum of three sources -- typically, one source on one side of a controversy, one on the other side of a controversy, and one from an authority who is not involved in the dispute).
