Ready to become more news-literate?

January 6, 2013

Welcome to MMC 2604 News Literacy at FGCU. This blog will play a large part in your learning and in your success in the course, so check this blog frequently.

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 5 p.m. each Sunday, and reply to that with a comment by the 7 p.m. Tuesday 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:

      Yup. You need to unsubscribe — unless you want to keep up with the news! Best wishes for a great semester, Amanda.

    I cannot view my recitations blog with Jennifer Reed. It says it’s private and I need to request access and I did that a couple days ago. Just wondering if there was something else I had to try!
