Reporting II, a required course for journalism and broadcasting students, is designed to expand and enhance your critical thinking abilities, and to make you a more thorough researcher and journalist.
This is a hands-on field reporting class. You will learn about the techniques (like interactive features) and resources (like the Internet) utilized by professional journalists, and we will particularly examine the pitfalls and rewards of reporting on international issues. We will also discuss civic journalism and its impact on the business.
I believe learning should be hands-on process, and that teaching should be done using a variety of tools and approaches.

Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2008-2009 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87At the bare minimum, students caught plagiarizing will receive a zero on the plagiarized assignment. Depending on the severity of the infraction, the instructor, at his discretion, may also choose to have the offender removed from the class, and/or to give the plagiarist a failing grade for the course.
In Reporting II, examples of plagiarism could include copying previously published material, using previously published articles, etc. as a blueprint for the International project without attribution, and so on.
