Photojournalism homework graded

Hello, guys! I just wanted to let you know that the photojournalism homework is graded, and I have posted comments in MyClasses for you to review. I will have your critiques and make-up quizzes done and posted by the end of the day so you will know where you stand before the final project.

If you would like to pick up your homework and make grammar corrections, you may do so until exam time (May 22, 5 p.m.). I will be in my office until 3:15 today. Otherwise, email me if you want to stop by to pick it up.

You may drop off corrections in my CMAT box or slide them under my office door up until 5 p.m. May 22.

Thanks, and good luck with your final projects!

Quiz make-up

Need to replace a low quiz score? Here’s your chance: complete the following out-of-class activity (DUE TUESDAY – I will not accept these via email or late):

  • Find 10 AP style errors around campus/town
  • Snap a picture
  • Print (on computer paper)
  • Circle the error, then correct it
  • 1 error = 10 points
  • You can circle and correct more than one error per photo
  • You will only get credit if your corrections are right!

Here an example:

Homework for Tuesday

Here are the instructions for parts one and two of the homework assignment, due Tuesday. Please print everything out, along with this rubric, to turn in at the start of class.

You will construct a photo essay on the theme “Life at Salisbury University.” To do this, you will produce three vignettes and three journalistic photos with captions.

How you chose to illustrate this theme is entirely up to you. It could center around athletics, residence life, academics or be a mix of all aspects of campus life. You may also use a campus-related event to demonstrate life at SU. Whatever the theme, it all needs to fit together cohesively.

For part one:

  • Get portraits/candids of three people
  • Interview each one to provide a statement-evidence-quote vignette for each (4-6 sentences)
  • Ask questions to appropriately tie the theme together

For part two:

  • Get three candid journalistic photos
  • Interview your subjects, and provide detailed captions for each (2-3 sentences)
  • Ask questions to appropriately tie the theme together

Please remember, these may not be friends, family, co-workers or classmates. You will receive a 20-point deduction if it is discovered that you have acted unethically.

I don’t normally do this, but because there were so many visuals that went along with both of this week’s presentations, I will make them available to you for review, both here and in the handouts tab:

Good luck!
