I wanted to touch base and reiterate the deadlines for the remainder of the semester. I realize this is the point in the semester where everyone is starting to feel the strain. However, the deadlines in this class are all fairly staggered and I the work is manageable — especially, if you take advantage of the class time that I give you to work on your projects.
As a reminder, here’s what’s coming up:
1) 1:30 – 2:30 minute “MyPacific” video assignment.
Due: Thursday, October 30.
2) 3-page reflection paper, “screen grabs,” and final peer reviews related to Client social media plans (individual assignment).
Theatre Arts team due: Tuesday, November 4.
Pac Ave team due: Thursday, November 13.
3) Live tweeting assignment.
Tweeting to be complete by Monday, November 17.
Storify report due Tuesday, November 25.
4) Final paper: social media plan or case study analysis (individual paper).
Presentations due: December 2 and 4. Papers due: December 4.
By November 13, you should identify your topic/Client in a one paragraph proposal describing your topic/Client and goal statement — to be approved by me.
*5) Grad students – you will write a short, research paper (7-10 pages) that, hopefully, can be used to support your upcoming thesis.
Due: Thursday, December 11.
We will also have 4 more weeks of blog writing. The purpose of the blog writing is to a) encourage you to reflect on the readings, which you should still be doing as they provide insight into your hands-on work, and b) to continue to develop your writing skills and blogging “voice.” Also, don’t forget to engage with your classmates’ blogs on at least 5 separate occasions.
Tomorrow will be primarily a working session. We will meet in the lab again.
As a reminder, there will be no class on Thursday, November 20 nor Tuesday, November 25 — although I will be on campus and available for one-on-one meetings, if needed. Also, there is no final exam.
