More Gearing Up for the Semester

Journalism Handbook for Students:

Journalism students enrolled in courses taught by Professor Gregg Morris are regarded as members of a community of scholars. Scholars push forward the boundaries of knowledge; respectable student journalists serve their public and their communities by seeking and reporting the facts as accurately as possible. Good journalists and scholars share a commitment to the same principle: integrity in their work. A doctor’s ethos is, “do no harm.” For journalism students, it’s “tell the truth.”

The handbook I’m using in class this semester is based on the handbook developed by NYU Professor Adam L. Penenberg who makes it available to other instructors via Open Access License. It has been abridged for students writing for the WORD.
