Introduction

Welcome to Writing Across Media, also known as WAM!

Just for fun, another kind of Wham!

In today’s class, we will review the syllabus and the schedule.

We will also go over your first assignment, which is to read boyd’s It’s Complicated: the social lives of networked teens and write a media literacy response.

We’ll talk about iPads, and you’ll sign the iPad use waiver.

Finally, we’ll head over to BAC to pick up your iPads!

Homework: for Monday, read boyd “preface,” “introduction” and Chapter 1 “identity.” Come prepared to discuss the discussion questions, and generate two questions for discussion that you’d like to see us talk about in class, using the guidelines in the assignment prompt.
