A brief summary of what happened daily in Mr. Phillips's classes

Intro to journalism 9/11/12

leave a comment »

Today we started off talking a little bit about how journalists covered September 11, 2001. We looked at front pages from newspapers on September 12 and then I showed a Poynter article about how the New York Times chose to not cover the anniversary of 9/11 on their front page.

After that I handed out two worksheets that give you the chance to practice eliminating passive verbs from your writing. One that I made myself is here, the other is from a workbook so you’ll need to get a hard copy from me.
