Title of post: AP Style bootcamp: flagging your AP style book
Author: Barbara Nixon
Date: February 2, 2010
The AP Style Bootcamp video was informative and a great idea. I wish I had this video to watch before I took my introduction to journalism course because I used the AP stylebook religiously in that class. The flags are a going to be a good and quick way for me to edit my news releases and articles I have to write for this class. Since I have had to use the AP stylebook in my previous class I am pretty comfortable with using it, although I do have to admit my weakest point is punctuation. I will probably take a day this week to read up on that section until I become familiar with the requirements. The Clean your Copy tutorial and quiz along with the AP Style bootcamp have both helped me to understand the grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc.
