POLS 319: Media and Politics: Warm-Up Exercise

Warm-Up Exercise

With a partner, answer the following questions: 

  1. What topics are you interested in researching for your blog posts? Write down at least one topic (it can be broad!) and something you know or have heard about your topic.

  2. Write down 3-5 keywords that you could use to search for news articles on your topic (this is where talking to your partner can be helpful!)

  3. What do you pay attention to when you evaluate an information source? Is there anything you pay special attention to when reading a news article?

Discover. Create. Succeed.
