Extra credit opportunity! VanCougar boot camp

Go to this. Get a free lunch. Learn about The VanCougar (the WSUV newspaper) and its intersection with language, texts and technology. Post about what you learned (particularly in relation to our class and its various topics) on our Google group. Get 25 extra credit points. Any questions?

This from Dean Baker, the VanCoug adviser:

"The semi–annual WSUV-Vancougar journalism boot camp is coming again. It's on Feb. 7 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and you and your students are invited.
Featured this time will be Steve Lane, Columbian photographer, and Michael Andersen, Columbian reporter. We'll talk about "Getting the story." The emphasis will be on conceptualizing, interviewing, reporting, and writing the story. The location probably will be the same as last time, the FSC conference room. But editor Katie Wells is still nailing that down. It's free. There's a free lunch and all are welcome. Those who plan to attend should e-mail Katie at"
