Journalism was a really good class to take no matter what credits your trying to get. I think everyone should do journalism its helpful in so many ways not just journalism and I'm happy that I took it. I wanted to do journalism so I could do yearbook, but now I think I that I might want to do the Tiger Print because this class made writing fun and also helped when I was writing papers for other classes. I really liked when we worked with photoshop and made those infographics. When we did them it was really fun because we got to use our creativity and do the research on something we were interested in. Something that I didn't like so much was when we did law and ethics. I know that a a big part of journalism because you have to know what you can and can't do. But I'm just not a big fan of reading those laws and government stuff, I don't know its just not a thing I like to do. But overall this call is such a good class and I would recommend it to everyone.

Law & Ethics/ Shattered Glass/ First Amendment & Quiz

Law and Ethics was very hard for me because I am not good at law things they're way to wordy and complicated. I didn't finished it completely because it didn't finish because I just wasn't that interested in it. Shattered Glass was really entertaining and taught us how we need to follow the rules of journalism and how if we make things up it will backfire on us. This was a good movie and I really like the lesson showed. First Amendment was pretty easy because I kind of did something...

AP Style Quizzes/ Newsworthiness

The AP Style Quizzes where pretty easy because we had those books that had the answers and because they questions went in order with the book. They were nice because they boosted you grade a lot and they were easy. Also if you didn't do to well they gave you a second attempt to get a better score then the first one. So I was always really happy when I saw we were gonna do these because they really helped the grade. Newsworthiness was pretty easy because there was the powerpoint on canvas...

News Story & Design

This project was sort of hard because it was our first time wiringa story for journalism and writing for journalism is a lot different than writing for another class. It was really challenging on how to setup the format for it but once you figured it out it got easier but it was still sort of hard.

Writing
Hacker Story/Leads/Using Quotes/Headlines

The Hacker Story was pretty fun because you got to read the interviews and then put the story together and I enjoy doing that. Overall it was really easy for me because I like doing it. Leads Practice was pretty easy because that was towards the beginning of class so everything was not that hard. his helped me practice my leads going into stores and it helped out a lot.

Thi project was really fun and I liked it because we got to use photoshop and it let me be creative. It also helped me because It showed me how to do an infographic and it helped me because I didn't know what to do for a project in another class and I thought I should do an infographic.
