Discussion: Your Data Journalism Examples – Due Jan 24

For Thursday’s class (Jan. 24), I’m asking everyone to explore three news sites:

Come prepared to discuss the following:

1.) Describe each site and what makes it unique? Who publishes it? What is its focus and audience? What kind of content do they produce?

2.) Pick a specific article, infographic or post from one of these sites that you particularly like.

Copy and paste a link to the specific data journalism in the comment field below under Leave a Reply. Please enter your First Name (no last name or other info needed) and copy the link.

Come to class ready to briefly answer the following questions. No need to write this, just think about it.

  • What is the story or information?
  • What is the source of the data? Where did it come from?
  • How did they present it or visualize it?
  • What did you like about it? Why did it stand out to you?
