Blog post 15: Reading assignment

In this blog post, publish your notes from Kobré, chapter 11. Your notes must appear in the form of one (1) numbered list. Write a brief statement above the list to explain or summarize it.

Your list must contain at least five items.

The list is not meant to represent everything in the chapter. It should represent what was most meaningful to YOU. Thus each student’s list will be different. The idea is to highlight or capture the ideas or information that resonated most strongly with you, in a format that other people might find interesting to read.

This chapter will help you understand how photojournalists think about photo stories, including the different types of photo story. Read more of this post

Blog post 10: Reading assignment

In this blog post, publish your notes from Kobré, chapter 1 (and page vi), and chapter 15. Your notes must appear in the form of two (2) numbered lists, one for each chapter. Write a brief statement above each list to explain or summarize that list.

The goal is for you to highlight or capture the ideas or information that resonated most strongly with you, in a format that other people might find interesting to read.

The list is not meant to represent everything in the chapter. It should represent what was most meaningful to YOU. Thus each student’s list will be different.

Please approach the reading with an open mind, with an attitude that there is much of use to be learned from this book. That’s why I assigned it — I think it’s well written and has wonderful examples. Read more of this post

Blog post 6: Reading assignment

In this blog post, publish your notes from Kern, chapter 13. Your notes must appear in the form of one (1) numbered list. Write a brief statement above the list to explain or summarize it.

The idea is to highlight or capture the ideas or information that resonated most strongly with you, in a format that other people might find interesting to read.

The list is not meant to represent everything in the chapter. It should represent what was most meaningful to YOU. Thus each student’s list will be different.

From your list, choose ONE of your items and find a story at NPR.org that illustrates or reinforces that point.

  • Include the full headline of the NPR story in your item.
  • Make that headline text a link to the story page at NPR.org.

Write two or three sentences that clearly explain how that NPR story illustrates the point — be sure to indicate clearly WHICH point you’re writing about. Read more of this post

Blog post 5: Reading assignment

In this blog post, publish your notes from Kern, chapters 1 and 2. Your notes must appear in the form of two (2) numbered lists, one for each chapter. Write a brief statement above each list to explain or summarize that list.

This is a legitimate type of blog post (although usually the content would refer and link to another blog post at someone else’s blog). The idea is to highlight or capture the ideas or information that resonated most strongly with you, in a format that other people might find interesting to read.

The list is not meant to represent everything in the chapter. It should represent what was most meaningful to YOU. Thus each student’s list will be different.

In each list, choose ONE of your items and find a story at NPR.org that illustrates or reinforces that point.

  • Include the full headline of the NPR story in your item.
  • Make that headline text a link to the story page at NPR.org.

That’s one link in each list, two different stories. Read more of this post
