Week 5 Notes – Th

Posted on 26 April 2007. Filed under: Class Notes |

Multimedia: RSS In Plain English

Discussion Leaders: Student Assignments – 6 (Vanessa), 7 (Justin), 8 (Lisa)

Other websites: NowPublic, NewsCloud, Blogcritics

Individual Project: Comment on this week’s Newsvine column (was due Tuesday – see assignment below)

Group Project:

  • Kathy: Add students to blog as contributors
  • Review candidate list. If there is a candidate that you would like to review — add that info as a comment on the candidate list post. I’m not going to guarantee you’ll get that candidate …we’ll see how this shakes out. Candidate assignments will be made next week.
  • Review possible issues list. For the 1 credit extra students: by next Wednesday, use the comments section on the issues list post to tell me two-three topics that interest you (from the list or not) — provide a well-focused question or questions that your article might address and provide links to two sources you could use (we will want to use scholarly and popular sources).
  • Assignment: Post two seeds to new blog by Tuesday class. Seeds should relate directly to the 2008 Presidential campaign. Create a category for each candidate using last name. Before posting, read the blog to make sure someone has not already posted the seed. Seeds can be news stories or blog posts but not candidate websites. This means the Newsvine “seed” requirement is now only two per week.

Resource: Commenting Policy

Readings due Tuesday! Student reading assignments 9,10. Both should be prepared to go on Tuesday.

Newsvine Commenting This Week
– two per person: one seed, one column (four people to review this week – the names listed are first and last in the list)

Absent: Blythe, Katie, Young

Sorry to do this, but I would like to write about Hillary Rodham Clinton because of my women’s studies field. Just wanna try and look into the possibility of a female president.
