       What is Journalism?
• In your own words, tell me what
  journalism is.
        Journalism is…
• the occupation of reporting,
  writing, editing,
  photographing, or broadcasting
  news or of conducting any
  news organization as a
  business.
        Getting Acquainted
• For the next fifteen to twenty minutes, I
  would like for you to read the newspaper.
  Read whatever section of the paper that
  draws your attention. Enjoy!
       What did you think?
• Independently complete the provided
  survey. Keep your paper until everyone is
  finished.
       What did you think?
• What were your priorities when reading
  the paper? What sections did you
  gravitate to? What sections did you
  ignore? Why are the sections that no one
  in class read printed at all?
            TV vs. Print
• How many of you are currently
  newspaper readers? How much time do
  you spend on the paper each day?
• Do you watch the news on TV? Is it
  better than print news? What are the
  strengths/weaknesses of each?
           Brainstorming
• With a partner, make the longest list
  possible of reasons for reading the
  newspaper. Number them in order of
  importance (1 being the most).
        Reasons for reading the
             newspaper
• Information on a tremendous variety of
  subjects, current and perennial; local, national
  and international
• Interpretation of events and issues by a variety
  of reporters (local to widely acknowledged
  experts)
• Services that help them solve problems of
  business, home, recreation, daily living;
  services that help the business community
  carry out its regular transactions( many are
  provided by advertisements)
• Entertainment, stimulation, diversion, and
  enjoyment
                Activity
• I would like for you to keep a newspaper-
  reading journal for one week, recording
  how much time you spend and the
  articles you read. We will be discussing
  them in class next Thursday.
