Look at what Google News has donehttp://news.google.com/news?&imv=1

  • are the pictures big enough?
  • would your rather see words or headlines?
  • do they attract your interest?

In the beginning was the word… and then came Mass Comm —
From the book, The Long Tail, read the pages in the handout, 27-30. Discuss

Compare it with the media history in our textbook, Media and Culture, 10-14. Discuss

Question — How do you  feel about reading from a textbook. Why do you suspect that I think it’s important?

LEVEL III, PERIOD III — HOW TO TELL A STORY — MAYBE IMAGES DON’T COUNT, AT LEAST IN THE BEGINNING…
