What I am teaching this semester

Carroll Hall is the home of the UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media.

The spring semester of 2020 begins this week at UNC-Chapel Hill. Here’s what I am teaching this term:

  • MEJO 157, “News Editing.” This course focuses on fact checking, story editing, word choice, caption writing and headline writing for print and digital media, with a dash of social media. The class meets twice a week and has 20 students. Here is the syllabus.
  • MEJO 557, “Advanced Editing.” This course builds on MEJO 157 by incorporating specialty areas such as features, opinion writing and sports. Students also collaborate with other courses on projects such as The Durham VOICE. The class meets twice a week and has 16 students. Here is the syllabus.

You can also browse syllabuses from across the journalism school at the Park Library website. Best wishes to students, faculty and staff on a successful semester!
