FALL 2021 OFFICE HOURS (CCE 267 or Zoom)
Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays (1-3 p.m.)
In-person office hours are drop-in. You may also schedule a meeting on Zoom at my personal meeting room (873 158 5327), but I do request you make a confirmed appointment to meet digitally.
For this class, it is required you keep informed of current events in state and national politics and news. While staying informed, you will want to identify when and how reporters access public documents and interviews -- and explore how they use these documents and interviews to best inform their readers.
To stay up to date, start by following these outlets, which specialize in investigative reporting, on Twitter: Center for Public Integrity, The Marshall Project, Investigative Reporters and Editors, ProPublica and Reveal. Please share if you find others that pique your interest.
Also, these web sites and handles can be great resources for you:
* The FOIA Project
* National Freedom of Information Coalition
* New England First Amendment Coalition
