Portfolio 2: The Coverage Continues

 

cute news.pngThe first portfolio introduced news for what it is and taught how to deliver it.  This portfolio will show the continuation of those lessons, but it will also demonstrate how to apply them effectively.  As a class, we've been composing news stories and editing them, trying to impart a working knowledge of the new material discussed in both blogging portfolios.  Because much emphasis has been placed on crafting the news story there were less blogging opportunities.   But quantity doesn't equal quality, right?  I've discovered fundamental lessons on language and style from the readings and their resultant blogs and learnt that time constraints should not become an excuse for sloppy writing.
