1 Journalism 1 Welcome to Mrs. Barnett’s Class

2  Please date each entry. You may write more than one bellwork on a single piece of paper.  Please write in complete sentences.  Keep all bellwork together in correct section of your notebook.  If you are absent, check my website or with the Journalism bulletin board for the Bellwork PowerPoint to make up the one you missed.

3  What are your goals (short and/or long term) for this school year? How do they differ from those you set for yourself last school year?  Reminder: ◦ MLA Heading – Left Side of Paper ◦ Write the Question ◦ Minimum of one (1) complete paragraph, but you may need additional paragraph to explain. ◦ 10-minute writing

4  Top 10 Associated Press Style Rules 1.Use a person’s full name and title the first time you mention him or her in an article.  For example, write Don Swanson, professor of communication, not Prof. Swanson.  Once people have been fully identified, refer to them by last name only.  There are exceptions, so always check the AP Stylebook.  Reminder: ◦ MLA Heading – Left Side of Paper ◦ Write the Rule and Example ◦ 10-minute writing

5  Top 10 Associated Press Style Rules 2.Spell out abbreviations or acronyms on first reference.  For example, use Passaic County Community College the first time you refer to the college in a story. You may use PCCC on any references made after that.  Another example would be to use DAR only after you have spelled out Daughters of the American Revolution on first reference. ◦ Well-known abbreviations or acronyms need not be spelled out.  For example, use FBI or YMCA or scuba without spelling them out, as people know what they stand for.  Reminder: ◦ MLA Heading – Left Side of Paper ◦ Write the Rule and Example ◦ 10-minute writing

6  Top 10 Associated Press Style Rules 3. Abbreviate months when used with days, and use numerals (1, 2, 3, etc) not ordinal numbers ( 1 st, 2 nd, etc). ◦ Exceptions are March, April, May, June and July- write them out, don’t abbreviate. ◦ For example, write Sept 2, 2008, not September 2ns, When using only the month and year, spell out the month.  Reminder: ◦ MLA Heading – Left Side of Paper ◦ Write the Rule and Example ◦ 10-minute writing

7  Top 10 Associated Press Style Rules 4. Generally, spell out the numbers zero through nine and use numerals for 10 and higher. Note, however, that numbers used at the beginning of a sentence are spelled out. ◦ Example: Five hundred twenty-four students attended. It is better, however, to rewrite the sentence so that it doesn’t begin with a number. ◦ Example: Attending the event were 524 students from local colleges. Years are one of the exceptions. ◦ For example: 2008 was a bad year for investors.  Reminder: ◦ MLA Heading – Left Side of Paper ◦ Write the Rule and Example ◦ 10-minute writing

8  Top 10 Associated Press Style Rules 5. Use numerals for ages younger than 10. This is another exception to the aforementioned number rule. When used like an adjective, say X-year-old, including the hyphens. Otherwise, don’t use the hyphens. ◦ For example: the 5-year-old girl kicked her brother, who is 8 years old.  Reminder: ◦ MLA Heading – Left Side of Paper ◦ Write the Rule and Example ◦ 10-minute writing

9  Top 10 Associated Press Style Rules 6. Spell out the word ‘percent” but use numerals for the actual number. ◦ Examples: Participation increased 5 percent. Nearly 28 percent of all students don’t like algebra. Exception: You may use the % sign in headlines.  Reminder: ◦ MLA Heading – Left Side of Paper ◦ Write the Rule and Example ◦ 10-minute writing

10  You must wear your ID above your waist and you must be able to show the id immediately when asked.  Fire Drill  Tornado Drill  Lock Down Rules/Pet Peeves  Lotions/Hand Sanitizers  Writing on other people’s property  Food/Drinks  Listening to school announcements
