Except for first draft and readings assignments, any or all of your projects to date may be resubmitted and the grade on the new version, if it's improved, will replace the old grade entirely. Just turn in a printout of your redone assignment before 2 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6.
This special week is designed not only to let you improve your grade but also to give you yet another opportunity to practice what we've learned in the "calisthenics" or "compulsory figures" portion of the semester before we move on to testing what you have learned via projects that let you emphasize whatever specific skills you feel most comfortable with and that are most appropriate to the challenges you create for yourself.
Do-overs may be a tad unusual in a course setting, but they are the way of the real world. There, you are tested on the overall final product you produce, not on how well you do each sub-task of that project. That, plus accounting for differing levels of experience coming into the class, is what we're hoping to recognize with do-over week.
Be sure to review past assignment tips on all projects to date, including the photojournalism assignment shown at top right. And don't forget to take a moment to enjoy your classmates' Top 10 Reasons We Just Love JOUR 425 (below), which have now been added to the all-time list of 6,200 reasons contributed by JOUR 425 class members over the years.
