Here we are: It’s the last week of the semester!
First, we will do test runs of your portfolio presentations. On Tuesday (Dec. 5), the students who worked in the newsroom on election night will have their test run. On Thursday (Dec. 7), the students who covered the election night parties will have their turn. All students have to be present on both days. Please prepare a Prezi presentation that showcases your portfolio. This should be a five to seven-minute presentation. No longer. Remember that you are not only presenting work from this class, but that you are expected to put your best foot forward as if you were applying for an internship or job. Make sure that you present your social media platforms in this presentation. Please email me the link to your Prezi.
Please remember to return the 360 cameras to me in class on Tuesday!
The portfolio review will be on Friday, Dec. 8, 9 to 11 am, in Temple 1137. All students are expected to attend. Please be there at the latest by 8:50 am.
