  • Transcript

    • 1. The One Thing Steve Klein Professor Emeritus/Journalism George Mason University steve.klein@cox.net
    • 2. The One Thing/Steve Klein Next class …
    • 3. The One Thing/Steve Klein … ask your students …
    • 4. The One Thing/Steve Klein What’s the one thing you remember from your last class?
    • 5. The One Thing/Steve Klein
    • 6. The One Thing/Steve Klein
    • 7. The One Thing/Steve Klein
    • 8. The One Thing/Steve Klein And that's what each student has to figure out! Just one thing!
    • 9. The One Thing/Steve Klein If you're familiar with the movie "City Slickers" starring Billy Crystal and Jack Palance, you may remember this bit of dialogue:  Jack Palance (Curley): "Do you know what the secret of life is?"  Billy Crystal: "No, what?"  Palance: "One Thing, just one thing. You stick to that and everything else doesn't mean sh*t!"  Crystal: "That's great, but what's the one thing?"  Palance: "That's what you've got to figure out."
    • 10. The One Thing/Steve Klein The ONE THING has been a signature feature of my teaching method and style at George Mason University. The idea comes from a short scene from the 1991 movie, "City Slickers.” http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101587/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2k1uOqRb0HU/
    • 11. The One Thing/Steve Klein For every class, I would hope that each student would learn at least ONE THING worth remembering (OK, so hopefully more!).
    • 12. The One Thing/Steve Klein Students keep track of the ONE THING by posting each comment in the appropriate class discussion folder.
    • 13. The One Thing/Steve Klein Each entry should be cleanly written in AP Style and reflect a specific point from the previous class.
    • 14. The One Thing/Steve Klein Good grammar.
    • 15. The One Thing/Steve Klein Good punctuation.
    • 16. The One Thing/Steve Klein Good word choice.
    • 17. The One Thing/Steve Klein Good sentence structure.
    • 18. The One Thing/Steve Klein No texting or tweeting style writing.
    • 19. The One Thing/Steve Klein Just good writing!
    • 20. The One Thing/Steve Klein
    • 21. The One Thing/Steve Klein
    • 22. The One Thing/Steve Klein The exercise is platform agnostic.
    • 23. The One Thing/Steve Klein I prefer Blackboard's discussion forum because George Mason University prefers that instructors keep correspondence with students within university platforms.
    • 24. The One Thing/Steve Klein But any discussion forum will do. For example, you could create a Google+ circle for every class, or a wiki, a Facebook page or a Twitter hashtag.
    • 25. The One Thing/Steve Klein If a student misses class for a legitimate reason, they still monitor the discussion and can make a comment for credit.
    • 26. The One Thing/Steve Klein I can learn almost as much about a student's writing from a short comment as I can from a full story assignment.
    • 27. The One Thing/Steve Klein The exercise provides students with consistent feedback and reinforcement throughout the semester.
    • 28. The One Thing/Steve Klein And the exercise provides the instructor with feedback on what the students are hearing.
    • 29. The One Thing/Steve Klein Given that students rarely take notes these days, THE ONE THING provides students with an exercise that helps reinforce learning.
    • 30. The One Thing/Steve Klein
