It’s become clear that my emails are not getting through to everyone. Some of you have contacted me, noting that you never received the first AP style exercise that I emailed a week ago…which explains why so few of you have posted that assignment on your blogs.
After a bit of noodling around, it’s become clear to me that there’s a glitch in my group email for this class. I’m getting an error message, but the source of the problem is unclear. I’ll try to sort that out this weekend…but in the meantime, I’ve uploaded the first two AP style exercises as PDFs and added links to them on the Class Schedule. Click on the link and the PDF will automatically download to your computer. Then you can highlight and copy the text of the exercise, open up your blog and paste it into a blog post, and edit it for AP style errors.
You’ll need Adobe Acrobat Reader to open these PDF files, but it’s available online for free. If you don’t already have it, you can download Adobe Acrobat Reader here.
Because of the glitch, you can have until 6 p.m. Sunday post the AP style assignments.
