Good morning!!!

Okay, watch this from the MIT Media Lab. Here’s a new piece of media that could change the way you make music and the music you listen to:

Mass Comm II – Period 2

Discuss blogs… The state of your blog… The effect of your blog on your grade…

  • Take out and discuss templates reflecting media coverage of Obama speech before joint session of Congress
  • Hand in

Continuing discussion and dissection of Syriana using the template:

  • How many stories are being woven together?

Mass Comm III – Period 3

As I explained yesterday — NEW RULES — students will:

  1. sign out equipment they use outside the class
  2. inspect equipment for functionality
  3. accept financial responsibility for its quality — if it works when it leaves the room and no longer works when it is returned, you will responsible for fixing it or replacing it within 10 class room days

Remember, you will be held to the September 18 deadline. Unless first discussed with me, you will lower you grade one full point each day past the deadline.

Also, students will be expected to blog on the connection between video and mass communication.

Students will be required to read — whether by purchase, or by library loan — the book, THE LONG TAIL.

Mass Comm I. Period 4

  • Take out and discuss templates reflecting media coverage of Obama speech before joint session of Congress
  • Hand in
