Week 11: Class Highlights
My personal “Aha!” moment.
- Realizing that my Intro to CA Law class was useful to present Chapter 13: Media Law. It was interesting to find that my law class would intertwine with my journalism class. I was able to use the terminology that was taught in my law class to better explain chapter 13. I had a huge moment when going over this chapter because I was able to learn about the Watergate Scandal, which is a movie that I plan on watching in the near future.
- The Seven Secrets of media was a big moment because I am able to apply it to whatever new media is created. It was interesting to learn about the seven secrets because it can be applied to everything and anything.
- Papyrus, enough said. I have always been a big fan of a store called Papyrus because they sold different kinds of papers and stationaries and I enjoy being creative when it comes to writing letters. I never put too much thought into why the store was called Papyrus until I learned what it was.Taking this journalism has greatly affected my level of media literacy. I definitely view media in a different way because this class has taught me to be more aware of where I receive my news. The Bill of Rights has impacted my understanding because I was able to learn that the government passed the Sedition and Libel Act only a few years after the Bill of Rights was ratified, which also ties back to the Seven Secrets of media.
