Week 3 objectives
Submit draft of first story for issue 5
Begin work on second contribution to issue 5
Participate in peer review

Monday- You should all be moving from notes to drafts, as those are due Wednesday. Additionally, most of you are missing at least one grade for a news tip. Remember, they are due every Friday.

Wednesday- Today is your draft deadline. Get those in the shared folder so we can all see what you're working on, and so you can check out what your peers are writing. If you get that accomplished, please take a stab at your second assignment for this issue. Your writing deadline is closer than you think.

Friday- Please work on your stories today, scheduling interviews, conducting research and working on expanding the ideas in your drafts. Your writing is due Monday of next week, and on Wednesday, you will be working on peer editing. Also, please turn in a news tip before you leave here.

Week 4 objectives
Submit final copy for first issue 5 assignment
Participate in peer editing
Make changes in content based on peer notes
Budget and start designing pages

Monday- Your final copy is due today for your stories. Please have it in the shared drive before the bell. Unless your story is time sensitive, there is no excuse for missing this deadline.

Wednesday- As per our usual process, you will edit two stories written by your peers. Be sure you write your name at the end of the story so I know who should receive credit for the work.

Friday- We will budget pages and start working on design in class today. Make sure your stories and photos are all present if you want them included, and as always, turn in a news tip.

Week 5 objectives
Make changes to stories
Submit photos
Budget and design pages

Monday- I read all of your stories last night. There were seventeen files in the shared folder, and a startling ten of them had NO QUOTES from people. Go get quotes. Stories without quotes are generally regarded as boring, and nobody will read them. It will make me sad. I don't want to be sad. Please. Get quotes. We send this to the printer a week from today. Do better.

Wednesday- Get to work on your pages in class today. We have very little time to get this all accomplished. You should be working with a partner and placing the elements where they belong.

Friday- Last chance to do any design work. You will have paper proofs Monday to edit with pens. Almost there, guys. And as always, get me a news tip.

Monday- Take a look at the draft pages. You will need to verify spellings of names, get headlines written and make sure the photos all have proper cutlines. Thank you!

Wednesday- Today, we will take a look at the digital copy of the newspaper and set some goals for issue 6 based on what we see in issue 5. Also, give me some ideas for the SENIOR photo poll here, and ideas for the photo poll we're giving to freshmen, sophomores and juniors here.

Friday- Today we need to distribute the newspaper to all of the classrooms on campus. Additionally, please submit a news tip.
