How to Succeed in Writing for Communication
The best advice that I can give about this class is to take your time but to not overthink. You have all read news stories before, and you have all seen news broadcasts before. This class is just letting you see those things from the other side. Write your stories like you would want to read/hear them. The writing you will do in this class is the type that is meant to be consumed with pleasure. It's not supposed to sound awkward, wordy, or redundant. Before you write, make sure you have decided what information is important. If you know the general outline of your piece, it can write itself. Also, consult the AP Styleguide for any questions you have. All you have to do is Google your questions and you can nail your grammar and style easily. And last but certainly not least, WRITE "-30-" AT THE END OF YOUR ASSIGNMENTS!
