Welcome to the class blog for MCom 100w, sections 1 & 2, for Spring ’13.
Please review the syllabus and other information posted on this site. In particular, check out the Resources page — it contains a variety of helpful resources, including links to samples and examples.
MCom 100w is a lot of work, but it can also be fun. This semester you’ll need to write at least 8,000 words (that’s the required minimum to pass this class), and work at improving your media writing skills. You’ll write news stories, opinion pieces, reflective essays, memos and summaries, and you’ll hone your proofreading skills.
The ability to meet deadlines is a critical skill for those who plan to work in media-related fields. To succeed in this class, you’ll need to keep up with the assignments and hand them in on time. Don’t let yourself fall behind — that’s the surest route to a failing grade in this class.
If you get lost or don’t understand something, please speak up. You’re probably not the only one who’s pondering that question. And if you find you need some help, please ask … just ask early in the semester, not at the end, so there’s time for me to help you.
See you in class.
