Academics, start your engines


It's that time of year again when we in academia have to gear up for the coming semester. If you're one of those, maybe JPROF.com can help.

The syllabus for the course I am teaching in web journalism this semester at Emory & Henry College is located on this site. Anyone who is interested can take a look. A few supplemental materials are there now, and I will be developing some other materials -- tutorials, handouts and the like -- as the course continues, and I will be putting those on this site as well. (If you have any suggestions or materials that you would like to share, please let me know.).

In addition, if you are looking for ideas for lectures or discussions with your classes, JPROF has plenty. For introductory classes in mass media or journalism, go to the syllabus for this course and you will find links to lecture notes on the following topics: news, newspapers, books, magazines, radio and television.

There are also discussion starters and notes for some of your other journalism classes, including
Simple words
Wordiness
Clich├ęs
Verbs of attribution
Accuracy

There is also the ever-popular Rules for Using Commas in both HTML and PDF form. If you can't find what you want, use the search function, or drop us an email and tell us what you need.
