Journalism 10 – some of you have corrections or need to complete the intro assignment from yesterday.Work on the following in class:
Open and read the document on the news values Learning from the Pros and work on the 4 Articles assignment (all in the Eddy Documents tab – you will have to rotate the articles on your device to be able to read them).
Essentially you’re reading each article, labeling what type it is (how do you know?), looking at the language (objective, subjective?), highlighting/taking notes on the attribution (direct quote or paraphrase)
This is due for tomorrow

The first strategy that we talked about was figuring out the literary devices and how the terms apply to the story: setting, plot, protagonist, conflict etc. But what are some other strategies? Figure out at least three for tomorrow.
