Today, I’d like to conference with you each about your news packages and to go over your self-evaluations.
Between now and the end of the semester, I’d like you to do two main assignments consisting of a combination of News Packages and/or Podcasts. You could do two News Packages or one News Package and one Podcast. You can of course do more than that, but I’d like us to have that as a minimum. You can choose the topic/subject, but it needs to be approved by me ahead of time.
Please have a topic chosen by Monday when you come to class, AND please fill out an News Package/Podcast Proposal for each. (in Classroom)
I’d also like to implement a point system for grading LinksLive! episode duties/roles. Here’s my vision. I’m open to suggestions.
Points for broadcast roles.
10 pts POST PRODUCTION/EDITING/GRAPHICS
5 pts ANCHOR 1 – PLACE ANNOUNCEMENTS IN SCRIPT/PRACTICE AHEAD OF TIME
5 pts ANCHOR 2 – PLACE ANNOUNCEMENTS IN SCRIPT/PRACTICE AHEAD OF TIME
3 pts CAMERA/AUDIO/STUDIO RESET – SOUND CHECK! – UPLOAD RAW FOOTAGE TO DRIVE FOLDER AFTER TAPING
3 pts STUDIO SETUP/LIGHTS/SCRIPT/TELEPROMPTER/BACKDROPS – CHECK BEFORE CLASS!
Off-Team Days: Work on Individual Projects – News Packages and/or Podcasts
Everyone must edit at least one episode every two weeks.
Points deducted for errors/mistakes – graphics missing, names misspelled, mics not turned on, etc. Rubric for broadcasts: 4 pts.
Rubric for each role:
Anchor – minimal mistakes, with feeling,
Camera/Audio/Studio Reset – Camera set correctly, sound check
Must earn _ pts/ 2 weeks for desired grade
This will need some tweaking, but this is the general idea.
I’d like everyone to edit at least once during the two-week cycle. If someone is absent, someone else might need to step in.
A = 25-30 pts.
B = 20-24 pts
C = 15-19 pts
D = 12-14 pts
F = 0-11 pts
I’d also like to discuss the idea of someone to do pre-post-production graphics. This person would create graphics and text inserts for the broadcast while others on the team are filming. This way, the person editing wouldn’t have to spend so much time creating them during the editing.
