I am slitting this summer up a bit spending this first part of it in Odenton, Md., with Renee. Of course, she works during the day, which gives me a bunch of time to work on all the other things I have going on. Here’s a list of the major items on my summer to-do list:
- Create syllabus and lessons for J8108 Reporting and Writing for the High School Adviser class I have teaching this summer for MU Direct as part of the online M.Ed. program for high school journalism teachers. Check out the blog my students will be creating if you are interested.
- Teach high school students and teachers how to create websites for school newspapers at the MediaNowSTL workshop.
- Co-direct the ASNE Reynolds High School Journalism Institute.
- Oh, and study for comps.
So far, I’ve kept up with my comps reading schedule, so I’m pretty happy with that. My goal is to take the exams in September sometime.
This coming weekend, I’ll head to Boston for the International Communication Association conference. I may try to blog a bit next week about my experiences there.
In addition to the work this summer, Renee and I are planning a weekend back in Indianapolis in June, and from there, I’ll head back to CoMo for the rest of the summer.
