Writing for Mass Communication

I teach two sections, totalling 40 students. Students are introduced to AP style, hard news, and news-feature writing during this transition to writing for newspapers.
I teach students basic multimedia skills, including reverse publishing (writing for the Web), how to create a slide show, and working with content management systems.
I also assist Dr. Dodd each semester, lecturing to more than 200 students about Web writing.
