I’m Alex, Dr. Husni’s teaching assistant for Journalism 101. My contact information is listed on the syllabus, so feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you ever have any questions about the class.
You will be expected to stay informed on current events, but chances are you don’t have the time to read the New York Times or Wall Street Journal cover-to-cover each day. I recommend checking out The Daily Beast; it’s a wonderful news aggregate. Also, if you have an iPhone, go ahead and download the free news app, Fluent News. It also pulls stories from multiple resources so you can get the best of what’s out there without visiting multiple news sites each day.
Remember your first test will be this Wednesday, Jan. 26. All you need is something to write with.
