Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses.


 
Digitized News
Prepare IconPrepare: It is befitting that we discuss writing for digital media after we have explored print and broadcast media because the Internet has given us the capability of converging those two forms of traditional media. In Chapter 7 of Writing for the Mass Media, Stovall (2014) states, “The Web is like broadcasting and newspapers, but it is also something quite different. Although it shares many of the characteristics of other media, it has qualities that make it unique. Those qualities are immediacy, flexibility, permanency, capacity, and interactivity.” Read Chapter 7 and explore all of these qualities about news on the Web. 
Reflect IconReflect: Take a moment to surf the web for news on at least four digital news media platforms. Consider what you see in relation to the five qualities that Stovall (2014) discusses in the reading. How well are those qualities demonstrated on the sites that you explore? 
Write IconWrite: Choose two of the sites that you explored and write a 250- to 300-word response that discusses at least two of the five qualities of digital news media. In your initial post, you must include at least one in-text citation from the reading material and an additional in-text citation from a scholarly source that you locate in the Ashford University Library or from another credible source. At the end of your post, include your name and a full reference for all sources cited in the body of your post. All citations and references must adhere to APA style guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing CenterCheck it! Your post must be submitted through Grammarly and Turnitin prior to submission. 
Discuss IconRespond to Peers: After you have written your initial post, read the posts of your peers and respond to at least two others about their experiences exploring digital news media. Your responses should address them by name, be between 100 and 150 words in length, and you must include your name at the end of each response.
