If you are taking journalism, you are up for a lot of work. However, don't fear the class because it will teach you aspects of English you never considered before. She is not an easy grader, but she is the kind of teacher you will respect and vice versa if you do your work.

Students who want to take journalism. I must give you a fair warning. I will list the things she gives for work every month: 3 summaries a week on 3 articles, she collects them when you have 15 articles you must include all the terms shes given us and it counts as a test, also your article 2x a month, counts as a test, HW on books- the Perfect storm and A civil Action, articles inbetween she gives you articles to read along with a set of questions, plus tests about every 2 weeks. Good luck.
