At the undergraduate-level university experience, there have been few activities that can be more beneficial to reading and individual reflection to determine student success. It is so important that you keep up with readings and employ strong reading skills. At two points within the course, you will be expected to pair a reading with a relevant example in the mass media and connect this to what you have learned about a theory, subject/topic discussed in the course.
Each writing reflection should be written in a personal journal style and posted to the discussion forum on Brightspace. It should include hyperlinks to the article you are reflecting on and a proper APA reference to the chapter in the text that you are referencing. These articles should generally not exceed approximately 500 words. The goal of this exercise will be to ensure you are getting the most from your reading and for you to begin appreciating the media while thinking critically about current issues and events.
