Leigh's Tips

  • Make sure that you stay on top of the WPost and Skimm reading. It's easy to fall behind and suddenly have 8 days worth of newspapers to read. 
  • Re-read the information sheet after you've written your story. It might remind you of an important detail you left out, or help you realize that some of your information was incorrect.
  • One of the toughest things for me to grasp was learning from my mistakes. Don't try and justify something if you got it wrong. Chances are, you really are wrong and need to fix it. Trust Professor Piacente's guidance.
  • Pay attention to the guest speakers. They have a lot of valuable information and they have experience. 
  • Don't rush when writing your stories. It might be tempting to finish up quickly, send in that email, and get the heck out. However, taking your time will allow you to catch your mistakes and ultimately get better grades.
