This was spring 2010, the first semester using Tim Harrower's Inside Reporting. I'd scouted for syllabus ideas online and found help from Charles Sitton at the University of Arkansas, Monticello. Most students in this intro class were mass communication majors, not aspiring journalists. That's why I chose Harrower's text (I know some have a love/hate thing with Inside Reporting). The writing schedule proved to be a little much for the group as a whole. The students, however, enjoyed the text. Also taught AP Style through weekly quizzes, as well as current events quizzes from the NY Times.
