Learning Goals

  • Story Research – Determine as a class the focus and direction of our project and identify stories that we will report and edit while in Spain. Students will be expected to go beyond what has been already reported, to find stories that represent how Spain's diverse population and experience is affected by the crisis.
  • Language Use – Students will use Spanish language in the field in reporting and editing, and will be expected to produce the site in Spanish and English.
  • Website – Define and outline the goals of the website. For whom are we reporting and how will we delivery those stories.
  • Mediums – Based on experience, interest and story topic, determine in what medium we will report each story. Each student will be not only encouraged, but expected to improve their skills in areas that they are not as proficient.
  • Deadlines – Like other journalism courses, we will set and hold to our agreed upon deadlines to complete the project on time.
  • Teamwork – Each member of the team will be expected to work closely with other team members to produce projects collaboratively, either through medium or within mediums. Brand and distribute the project to a wide audience, both in Spain and abroad.
