Write an essay on either a significant event OR person that contributed greatly to advancing mass media in society.
As an example, a person could be someone like Hearst, Marconi, Armstrong, or any individual you feel deserves credit for their endeavors. If it is in radio or television, it could be someone behind or in front of a microphone or camera. The person can be anyone from the past to the present.
Document an event that helped stimulate improvements or create an awareness in mass media. Examples are War of the Worlds, Hindenburg disaster, WWII, the Kennedy assassination
, or any event that you feel was worthy of changing mass media for the better.
NOTE: You should think carefully about who in particular, or what event to use. It REALLY needs to be a person or event that was, or is currently significant in making the media better in technology or in presentation of performance. If you are not sure, contact me for clarification in determining if your person or event falls into this category properly.
Writing an essay does not mean just copying material from another source word for word; you should incorporate your own thoughts within the source material you use and paraphase the source material as much as possible. This means reworking the material so it just is not an exact copy of another person's work.
The essay should be at least three (3) pages in length, double-spaced, typed with 12 size font.
Fonts that are acceptable: Arial, Times New Roman, or Courier.
Material used from other sources MUST be in a bibliography format at the end of your paper.
Use a minimum of three (3) sources, one of which may be the textbook.
Final paragraphs should be in your own words drawing a conclusion to the material presented.
