Journalism Reflection

This unit was about Journalism, we learned the style of communication that are used when writing news articles, we also learned why they communicated that way. Generally it is just a form of giving out facts in a nonbiased and doing so mostly straight to the point. Certain things I think I would like to reflect on are first of all the people I worked with, the final newsletter that we compiled and just a general summary of how I feel about the entire unit. It was definitely a learning experience in this unit, despite not being the typical fun class, we all enjoyed some parts of this unit I suppose.


First is the people I worked with, before moving on to the newsletter we compiled together let’s start with the people I did it with. Luca Thiel, Hayden Hsueh, Arham, Evan Chen and myself. Luca was undoubtedly the most serious worker with me, as the other 3 goofed off a bit, or a lot depending on the scale you are using. Hayden and Arham was like best buddies in this unit, since if they are goofing off, it would be together, since they have common interest in F1 Racing, Luca also shares the same interest but he had better disciplining. Evan is like the “I will do stuff lolz” cause he is always on twitter for some reason. We did eventually get things done, but I was a bit angry when they were messing around sometimes, I mean well, it just felt weird in a way.


Next is the actual newsletter which nobody will read, but hey it was still worth a few points. Our newsletters format was pretty good, the lining, the font and the size was controlled pretty well in my opinion because the formatting when we did it looked good. As with the content, I feel like we all did “decent” content, is it our best? No, it is most definitely not.


For a summary, I feel like we did a substantial job, it wasn’t bad, but it is definitely not good. I wouldn’t say I had high expectations but this is not our best and maybe next time we can do something better. This unit was hardly enjoyable in my opinion, it wasn’t hard but it was very tiring and confusing in some ways. It is a process of our learning and maybe we did learn something new in this unit, I don’t think others would look forwards to this unit but I think they will learn something from it.
