My classwork as a graduate student at the Missouri School of Journalism includes not only doing journalism but also learning how to think critically about journalism. The graduate assignment for my convergence editing class includes this directive:
… write an academic analysis of a current event/development in online journalism. Students must demonstrate an understanding of the issue presented, providing critical synthesis and analysis of the coverage current events, ethical case studies, academic reports, etc.
This page on will house those analyses. Stay tuned for the first one!
