Week 14 (April 10)

For our last class meeting we addressed the topic of journalism and trauma. The As a Dart Center Educator in 2003 and 2004, I was introduced to the ideas I shared in class: that trauma victims, our audience, and journalists themselves are all affected by exposure to traumatic incidents and that we can take steps to prevent causing harm. I’ve since become convinced that it is a moral imperative to expose journalism students to these ideas. Please consult the Dart Center web site for the wealth of information offered there.

Tonight we also distributed the take home final, which is due to be uploaded to turnitin.com by the last day of finals.

Thank you for a great semester. Good luck to everyone.
