Week 1 objectives
Accept assignment for story in fifth newspaper
Critique fourth newspaper

Monday- Today, we need to see about our next story assignments and review the goals you all set at the end of the second semester. Once you have a story assigned, start to set up interviews and get some research done.

Wednesday- We will be in the library during class today. They are using my room for some testing, so we have to make ourselves scarce. I want to take the opportunity to do a little research.

Friday- Make sure you turn in a news tip today. Also, make sure you're making progress on your story and take care to assure there will be a photo to go with it, if possible.

Week 4 objectives
Submit notes for a deadline grade
Submit drafts of stories for a deadline grade

Wednesday- You should get your story perfect today. The final writing deadline is set for Friday, but if you've been paying attention, Friday is a holiday. The deadline still stands, though. If you don't have a story ready to go by Friday, you may not make it into issue 5. Also, make sure you turn in a news tip today.
