Welcome to EL 227, "News Writing."
The course website is located at http://jerz.setonhill.edu/teaching/EL227. I will update the online syllabus periodically, so the printout I give on the first day of classes is just for your convenience. The official version of the syllabus is the online version (though I will notify you in advance of any significant changes).
Topics for today:
- Review syllabus.
- What is news writing?
- How does it differ from literature essays and creative writing?
- Discuss how writing for the general reader differs from writing for your instructor.
The front page of the blog only shows the main class topic and the main readings scheduled for that day. To get a full list of the lesson plan for any day, click on the date on the calendar. (You might want to see what's due on Aug 29.)
