Agenda:

  • Review – throw our brains back to last class; some things we discussed:
    • what is critical thinking and why is it important?
    • how does the internet create our world view (the water)?
    • what is  shared knowledge, its importance and why is it diminishing?
    • tech disrutptors (new tools that come along) impact Journalism and the News – the medium affects the message:
      • as a society we are susceptible to conspiracy theories and Fake news (biases, psychology, memory)
      • we need Journalists who are storytellers; who utilize the new tools effectively; we need YOU to be critical consumers….because there is a relationship between Democracy and a Free Press and an informed society (images)
  • Finish the rest of the Assignment – open your Critical Thinking and Journalism document (document A on the New Media Tab – which you should have notes on)
  • DOWNLOAD AND SAVE TO YOUR FOLDER the article from the New Media Documents tab of the class blog: Skim Reading is the New Normal
    • READ the article AGAIN: and work with a partner to answer the prompts on the side of the document
    • highlight words in yellow that you do not understand and we will have a de-briefing session
    • homework check for this tomorrow (Thursday, September 22)
  • Write your reflection of what you learned from the two documents and the class discussions – the entire document will be turned into TEAMS for 10 Formative Assessment marks:
