This site is the result of reporting done in Dr. Lindsey Wotanis’ COMM 224: Electronic Newsgathering Seminar at Marywood University in Scranton, PA. COMM 224 is an advanced journalism course that covers timely topics. In Spring 2012, students studied and reported on issues of hunger in northeastern Pennsylvania.
To see a copy of the syllabus, click the “Syllabus” tab at the top of the page.
Throughout the semester, students blogged about their experiences covering hunger. These blogs included reactions to things happening in the class or to things they learned about hunger as they talked to people in the community. To read student blogs, click the “Student Blogs” tab and select a link to a student’s independent blog.
The “Home” tab features a collection of student blogs written during the course of the Spring 2012 semester. Students voted to select among each others’ best posts on the students’ individual blog sites. Those best posts were then published on this site as “Featured Blog Posts.”
The students also did original reporting on issues of hunger in northeastern Pennsylvania. By clicking on the “Access & Awareness,” “Needing Nutrition,” and “Social Stigma” tabs, readers will be taken to original content produced by the students. This content represents the students’ major individual and group projects.
Students also educated followers about hunger-related issues on Facebook. To “like” our page, click here.
