Course format. The format of the course is two 55-minute lectures and one 115-minute lab per week. It would be useful to think about this course as a theory and practice course. The lectures and readings give you ideas about writing for the electronic media and provide examples that you can use as models for your own work. During lab session we will help you put those ideas into practice. Your lab instructor will help you develop your skills more closely and will grade your work. 2. Computers . You will be using PC computers. You will write and edit electronically, we will communicate via campus e-mail and you will retrieve information from time to time from online sources. Please be sure you are familiar with basic operations in the relevant software programs. 3. Attendance . University guidelines: In general, acceptable reasons for absence from class include illness, serious family emergencies, special curricular requirements (e.g., judging trips, field trips, professional conferences), military obligation, severe weather conditions, religious holidays and participation in official university activities such as music performances, athletic competition or debate. Absences from class for court-imposed legal obligations (e.g., jury duty or subpoena) are excused. After due warning, professors can prohibit further attendance
