Practice Interview Thursday!

Hiya Ethics,

Be sure to bring a copy of your final interview assignment (attached again here) to class on Thursday so we can practice on Matt Vautour, an alum and former Collegian editor who covers UMass sports for the Gazette. I’ll introduce Matt, and you’ll conduct the interview, making sure you get responses to all the questions assigned—among others you might want to ask.

One of Matt’s most interesting stories from an ethical perspective was on the firing of former UMass football coach Charlie Molnar. Take a look here. And Matt’s visit, of course, will be yet another opportunity to talk to a working journalist about how he does his job.

Some of you still need approved topics for your interviews, so we should get those settled by Friday at the latest. Due date for the final essay is the last day of class, May 2.

Next week, we’ll discuss Photography, our text and your interviews.

See you Thursday!
