I was in group number two...I think...but Katie, Kaitlin, Richelle, Jessie, Megan, Cory, Matt, April, and Ashley. Kaitlin, Richelle, Jessie, Megan, Cory, April, and Ashley all wrote informative pieces. The really interesting thing is the number of journalism majors that said that they didn’t actually like the news. I always just assumed that journalists lived and breathed the news and I’m sure some do. It’s kind of like a girl who becomes an English major who didn’t like to read lol. I can totally understand. Sometimes you are just good at something and you can learn to like it.
Katie wrote a little creative piece in story form about how the news was her friend, and then not, and then friend again. The story personified the news and was fascinating to listen to. I really enjoyed her story and felt bad for her about the fact that the news featured her team on the front page crying after a loss and not the winning team. That’s just low.
Matt did a monologue. It was dynamic, funny, and informative. It was fun seeing such a quiet guy open up like that.
Overall, everyone did a great job presenting. It was so nice to be able to get to see the different personalities we have in the class. I also enjoyed getting the chance to go outside for class (even if we were getting attacked by bugs). We should definately go outside as much as possible. I'm anxious to see what the other group did.
