Here they are, your group blog teams for fall 2016! I went through your existing blogs and the comments you left on last week’s assignment to sort you by complementary interests, styles, and so on. The more detail you provided, the better a fit I was likely to find. Regardless, you’re in this boat together now, so get to know each other!
In today’s class, you’ll be meeting to work out the initial details of whatever it is you’ll be doing for the final five weeks of the semester. Next Monday, Oct. 10, your group will present its concept to the class along with several specific story pitches. As a group, you will print and submit the following as a (stapled) six-page packet:
- Page 1: The title of your blog and a detailed description
- Pages 2-5: One page from each member with ten one-sentence story pitches. These must be complete sentences that underline why we should care and suggest potential sources.
- Page 6: A tentative posting schedule (Monday-Thursday) for the final five weeks of the semester.
All this material can be changed, but you must have it in hand at the START of Monday’s class (or the group will receive a deduction). NOTE: Don’t create an actual blog on WordPress yet – that comes later.
