This is a syllabus for the first basic journalism class I teach. I revamp along the way.

For example, when I managed to get an NCIS producer to do a Skype interview, I changed the syllabus for that week and also invited ROTC students (the producer was once both ROTC and military) who were not journalists to participate in the discussion. And when the producers of the journalism themed feature film Morning Glory allowed me to hold a special screening for the entire department, I changed the assignment to reflect a discussion of that.

But, just as in the real world of journalism, news happens and the students must be flexible.
