This book is designed to help us understand the many changes to U.S. journalism and imagine new futures for it – futures in which it can serve as an even more useful tool for promoting a well-functioning society. But, before we can imagine new futures, we must take a step back and examine the institution of U.S. journalism through a critical and in-depth lens. This book aims to offer just that. It provides a conceptual foundation for understanding the development, logic, and practice of journalism in the United States; describes some of the key challenges, tensions, and opportunities it has faced, is facing, and will likely face; and offers guidance to help individuals develop the skills needed engage in impactful journalism.

Communication Law Syllabus

J 385: Communication Law

Legal aspects of the media: constitutional freedom of expression, news gathering, access to public records, libel, privacy, copyright, advertising, electronic media regulation, and antitrust.

It is important for all journalism and communication students to develop discerning knowledge of the legal protections and restraints placed upon freedom of the press in the United States.
The (aspiring) journalism and communication practitioner should also be aware that far from being static, the law is an evolving set of formal principles, always subject to interpretation and application by the courts. Both statutory and judge-made law, federal and state, involving American media will be the primary focus of the course. In addition, given that U.S. communication law carries global implications, this course will examine press freedom issues from an international and comparative perspective. The comparative look at press freedom will lead you to think critically about U.S. communication law.

The course will address the question of freedom of the press on three levels: (1) What are the legal limits on expression and how does a journalism practitioner avoid legal problems? (2) Why have courts, legislatures, and administrative agencies established the existing limits? (3) How does U.S. communication law interact with the laws of other countries in the unfolding era of global media?

When you combine the sheer scale and range of digital information now available with a journalist’s "nose for news" and her ability to tell a compelling story, a new world of possibility opens up. With The Data Journalism Handbook, you’ll explore the potential, limits, and applied uses of this new and fascinating field.

This valuable handbook has attracted scores of contributors since the European Journalism Centre and the Open Knowledge Foundation launched the project at MozFest 2011. Through a collection of tips and techniques from leading journalists, professors, software developers, and data analysts, you’ll learn how data can be either the source of data journalism or a tool with which the story is told—or both.

Fake News in the 1890s: Yellow Journalism
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

Alternative facts, fake news, and post-truth have become common terms in the contemporary news industry. Today, social media platforms allow sensational news to “go viral,” crowdsourced news from ordinary people to compete with professional reporting, and public figures in offices as high as the US presidency to bypass established media outlets when sharing news. However, dramatic reporting in daily news coverage predates the smartphone and tablet by over a century. In the late nineteenth century, the news media war between Joseph Pulitzer’s New York World and William Randolph Hearst’s New York Journal resulted in the rise of yellow journalism, as each newspaper used sensationalism and manipulated facts to increase sales and attract readers.

This Lesson Plan was created by Joanna Pruitt as part of the 2020 ESU-NDE Remote Learning Plan Project. This original lesson is for classroom use; however, there is a virtual option as well. Educators worked with coaches to create Remote Learning Plans as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The attached Lesson Plan is designed for Grades 9-12 English Language Arts students; however, this could also be used as a Social Studies project as well. Students will evaluate credible sources through research on genocides post World War II after completing a novel unit covering the Holocaust. Students will also create scrapbooks using summarizing, citation, informative writing, textual evidence, caption writing, and persuasive writing. Students will also be expected to demonstrate oral communication skills as they have to present their projects to the class. Students will use background knowledge to clarify text and also gain a deeper understanding by using relevant evidence from a variety of sources to assist in analysis and reflection of informative text.

Hoe om 'n joernalis in die 21ste eeu te wees.pdf

This is the Afrikaans translation of the OER textbook How to be a journalist in the 21st century, written by the same authors and available here on OER commons: https://www.oercommons.org/courses/how-to-be-a-journalist-in-the-21st-century-pdf

The description below is in Afrikaans (it is the same description as for the English version, which can be accessed through the link above).

Hierdie handboek is ’n inleiding tot joernalistiek, in die Afrika- en Suid-Afrikaanse konteks, geskryf vir jong mense wat in die digitale omgewing beweeg. Die handboek is uniek in die sin dat studente en die dosent dit saam geskryf het, dit is dus 'n hulpbron wat fokus op leer deur die oë van studente in Afrika en die dinge wat hulle graag wil leer om joernaliste te word. Die skrywers is Andre Gouws, dosent in joernalistiek aan die Noordwes-Universiteit in Potchefstroom, Suid-Afrika, en sy eerstejaar- en tweedejaarstudente van 2021.

Die doel van hierdie oop handboek is om ’n algemene inleiding tot joernalistiek in die 21ste eeu te verskaf aan beide joernalistiekstudente en enigiemand wat, miskien onwetend, reeds hul eie soort joernalistiek skep. Hierdie nuwe soorte joernaliste sluit onder andere in bloggers, entrepreneuriese joernaliste, sosialemedia-gebruikers, nuusbriefskrywers en YouTube- en TikTok-inhoudskeppers. In die digitale era is joernalistieke vaardighede waardevolle vaardighede vir enigiemand wat nuus of inligting skep of versprei. Joernalistiekvaardighede sluit in begrip van nuus, die konteks van die media, regs- en etiese kwessies rondom die skep en verspreiding van alle soorte inhoud, en praktiese vaardighede. Hierdie handboek bevat idees om voornemende onafhanklike joernaliste met joernalistieke entrepreneurskap te help. Geleerdes stem saam dat joernalistiek vandag baie wyd gedefinieer kan word. Dit is nie meer iets wat net opgeleide joernaliste doen nie. Om joernalistiek te ken en te verstaan ​​sal almal help om beter stories te vertel; om dalk inkomste te verdien daaruit; en, belangriker, om dit op die regte etiese en deernisvolle manier te doen.

How to be a journalist in the 21st century.pdf
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

This textbook is an introduction to journalism, in the African and South African context, written for digital natives. The textbook is unique in the sense that students and the lecturer wrote it together, it is therefore a resource that focuses on learning through the eyes of students in Africa and the things they would like to learn to become journalists. The writers are Andre Gouws, lecturer in journalism at North-West University in Potchefstroom, South Africa, and his first-year and second-year students from 2021.

The purpose of this open textbook is to provide a general introduction to journalism in the 21st century to both journalism students and anyone who, perhaps unknowingly, create their own types of journalism. These new types of journalists include bloggers, entrepreneurial journalists, social media users, newsletter writers, and YouTube and TikTok creators, among others. In the digital era, journalism skills are valuable skills to anyone who creates or distributes news or information. Journalism skills include an understanding of news, the context of the media, legal and ethical issues around creating and distributing all types of content, and practical skills. This textbook contains ideas to help prospective independent journalists with journalistic entrepreneurship. Scholars agree that journalism can be defined very broadly today. It is no longer something that only trained journalists do. Knowing and understanding journalism will help everyone to tell better stories; to perhaps earn an independent income; and, importantly, to do it an ethical and compassionate way.

"The digital age has created the need for a new kind of literacy-a literacy that empowers news consumers to determine whether information is credible, reliable and truthful. This is not just a skill; it is a new core competency for the 21st century. So-called "fake news" is hard to spot and spreads easily, leading to disagreements over basic facts. The antidote to the growing challenges posed by this digital revolution is news literacy. This mini news literacy course includes two three-hour sessions that will teach anyone to become a more critical consumer of news. "

Print issues are published quarterly, per the publisher’s discretion, available time and funding levels. Founded in San Antonio in 2017, SAR is based in Austin, Texas. San Antonio Review is devoted to serving as a gathering space outside academia, the market and government for writers, artists, scholars, activists, workers, students, parents and others to express their perspectives and reflections on our shared world and help develop visions of our collective future. Funded by its publisher’s income from his day jobs, donations and the sale of print editions and other materials and led and maintained by an all-volunteer editorial collective, SAR is not beholden to any institution, organization or ideology. San Antonio Review is a costly endeavor undertaken with love by its editors and publisher. It is not a profit-seeking enterprise. It aims to herald interesting and unheard voices. It receives no financial support beyond donations, referral fees for purchases from sites we link to (like independent bookshops) and purchases of our print edition, which are used to recover some of the ongoing costs of web hosting, printing and other infrastructure.

U.S. History - Boston, The Hidden History of Boston's Abolition Acre
Rating
0.0 stars

This educational curriculum package is the product of a five-year labor of love. Beginning in 2011, several educators, history enthusiasts and social activists coalesced around the charismatic Horace Seldon. Horace was finishing a long local career in social work, years with the National Parks Service, Boston, and as one of the founders of the social service organization Community Change. He was intent upon pursuing a historical research project which he had been contemplating for some time. The resultant group, led by Horace Seldon, then embarked on a research and reading circle exploring the hidden history of the Boston antebellum African American community situated on the North Slope of Beacon Hill and in the area immediately adjacent to the current Boston City Hall Plaza. The work began by investigating legendary author, activist and Beacon Hill resident David Walker. It has since grown organically into a full-fledged historical reclamation project, the results of which we now share with you.Being educators, we have naturally gravitated to exploring avenues which facilitate promoting civic engagement and self-actualization, both in the classroom and for lifelong learning. This enterprise reflects that perspective and energizing prospect. We are currently in discussion with the Mayor's Office of Diversity about bringing this project to City Hall Plaza as an integral part of the upcoming 400'h anniversary celebration of the founding of Boston. Roxbury Community College is honored to have been given the opportunity to create a digital curriculum platform to dispense information and inspire enthusiasm for history across the commonwealth, a history which surrounds us but remains invisible to many residents and tourists. It is our intention to combine an interdisciplinary approach using the latest in technological innovations, artistry and networking to share this compelling narrative, illuminating not only the lessons of the past, but the durability of a community preparing for a future of multiple challenges and inconvenient truths.
