I will be attending the UNITY journalists of color convention next week, so there will be no class on July 23. Instead, I will be available for office hours on Monday 7/21 afternoon and Tuesday 7/22. If you need to ask questions about your final project, please email me with a few proposed times to talk by phone on those 2 days. (I will be leaving town Thursday until late Sunday 7/20, so I will respond to email when I return.)
The next assignment is due Wednesday 7/23, during normal class time. Please email me the next phase of reporting out your essay: That is a list of sources, online, in books, and a comprehensive news article search. This time I am requiring a clip search. You should have access to Nexis Lexis through the campus library. Please use that to compile a short list of the major coverage of your topic. If not the topic exactly, topics very analogous or similar. Please include this in a 1-2 page annotated source list for your subject. You should also include at the top of the piece, a revised budget line: one sentence explaining what the cultural trend is and what it means/whether it is a force for good or evil, etc.
Please email me this information to my gmail account by Wednesday evening when we would have class.
I look forward to corresponding with you via email next week.
I’ll see you in class again on July 30. At that point, I’d like to see an outline and first draft of your essays for us to discuss in class. Please bring 4 copies. We will workshop those essays at that point. By the last day of class, August 6, we will discuss the final 3 readings, Hertzberg, DuBois, and Said.
