This is my syllabus for a 15-week college course in news writing and reporting. I've worked particularly hard on setting a tone in the introduction to the class and to get beyond jargony course objectives. Those parts are the culmination of four semesters teaching the class.

What's new about this syllabus is that I've added an online component; we are having weekly message-board discussions. I'm hoping that this will make sure students are thinking about the course outside of classtime, will enable me to reinforce concepts from class and help them to reflect on what they've learned over the duration of the course. We'll see.
