  • As you read the paper, underline the main ideas of the article. That way, when you review the paper before class for the quiz, you can be reminded of what you need to know faster
  • If you have a question or just want more practice with your writing, just ask! Prof. Piacente is really great about helping out
  • Prof. Piacente always asks on his quizzes for one article not mentioned earlier in the quiz. Try skimming the articles on the inside of the paper to make sure you have an article. It's an easy extra credit point.
  • When writing a story, keep it simple and get straight to the point. This isn't like writing an essay, where you have to analyze and use big words; you're writing for the average Joe. Just say what you need to say.
  • Read your stories out loud before you submit them. You'd be surprised what kind of dumb, little mistake you made that could cost you major points.
