News Writing, The Class Im Forced To Take

19 Feb

For a class thats about three hours long we often talk about a whole lot of nothing. This class is supposed to be about reporting, and uncovering news for papers and magazines. So far this semester instead of focusing on the skills we need to learn for the world of journalism we focus on cheesy jokes, and rants about crocs told by my professor. So in result of making such a long class, the instructor doesn’t even know how to fill the time. It would be a lot nicer if the class was shortened, so we could actually focus on what needs to be learned with the time were given. But a student can only dream right?
