Welcome to MMC 2604 News Literacy!

August 23, 2012

Welcome to the inaugural offering of News Literacy at FGCU. The new name — this course and this blog used to be called Journalism & Society — better reflects the content and mission of this course.

This blog will play a large part in your learning and in your success in the course, so check this blog daily.

First, here you will find the general topic for your 10 blog comment assignments throughout the semester. Go to “Your Blogs” (a link in the upper right corner of this home page), find your recitation link, read what your preceptor has posted by 7 p.m. Sunday night, and reply to that with a comment by the 7 p.m. Wednesday deadline.

Second, here you will find also the Twitter news feed (look to the right –>). It links you to the stories you must follow and understand for the weekly quizzes.

Third, this blog will feature occasional news literacy news intended to stimulate your thinking and (if you are truly an engaged learner and concerned news consumer) additional conversation in and out of class.

Begin by subscribing to this blog. Directions are on the upper righthand side of the home page, where you will find these words:

    Appreciating the time and energy you put into your
    site and in depth information you offer. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed information.

    Fantastic read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.
