This is the best introductory journalism textbook I've encountered. Includes several great assignments for in-class work; also drives home the importance of factchecking (many of the assignments feature mispellings/contradictions that force students to verify the info). Effectively teaches nuts & bolts journalism while encouraging students to develop their news sense.

An all-porpose text for an intro class.
Before, I didn't bother listing textbooks on Goodreads. This year, I'm going to try to keep a broader record of what I read and where all my time goes.

The problem is that I really don't know how to rate a textbook. As far as textbooks go, this one was ok. Fairly to the point and easy to navigate. I think that's about the most you can ask from it.
Surely there are better texts than this. I would have learned a ton more from Perry Parks' Making Important News Interesting. I hope that's the new JRN 200 text.
