Thanks to Samantha Caro for volunteering to do our first in-class presentation next Tuesday.
The assignment, which all of you will do at some point during the semester, is to write a blog post about a website, blog, Twitter feed or whatever that you find helpful in blogging about your beat. Elements should include:
- Why you chose the site and what you like about it
- How it could be improved
- How it does or doesn’t involve its audience
- Briefly, show us another site or two about the same topic for purposes of comparison
Once you are in class, you simply need to do a five- to 10-minute presentation based on your blog post, leaving aside another five minutes or so for questions.
