Mass Media & American Society – Week of 9/29 & 10/6

Mass Media & American Society Midterm – 50 points

Research and create an action plan to encourage SNC students to keep up with the news of the world and to know their First Amendment rights.

How can you ensure that you see more than celebrity news on your Facebook feed, or what news sites would you recommend to your peers to read? What would you say to convince them to be more alert to what’s going on in the US and the world?

Watch the TED Talk: Beware online “filter bubbles”

In 2014, 29 percent of Americans polled did not know the five basic freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment. Do SNC students know their First Amendment freedoms? How can you remind them?

Submit an action plan by Oct. 8 (WTF column?, a summary of your research, social media campaign?, posters, work with a club, Potty Press, use the EE Club to host a forum, etc.)

 Put the plan into motion by Oct. 15
