We’ll play catch-up a little bit this week to make up for our hectic evening of debate watching and live tweeting! The audience at the debate generated 519 #mscmprez tweets — that’s amazing. Great work on your tweeting! We’ll debrief on Tuesday.
We’ll also spend some time that day talking about interviewing strategies and research techniques. We may not have much time for the latter, so I encourage you to check out last semester’s MSCM 175 class wiki on the topic. They compiled lots of good ideas.
On Thursday, we’ll begin exploring the qualities of powerful feature writing — specifically, profile articles, because that’s your next major assignment. Read three of the profile articles linked below, and use them to complete the Anatomy of a Profile Article Assignment for Thursday. (I’ve tried to choose a variety of topics, so just select those that are interesting to you.)
