It is easy to become absorbed by a project, and that’s what I’ve spent the past month doing in my Public Affairs Reporting class.
For inspiration, Professor Amy Walker, sent us out of the classroom and into the real world – for a drive down Dixwell Avenue. Between Hamden and New Haven the ideas started to flow. There was so much to focus on – and we all found different facets to explore.
I got to meet some dedicated youth workers and some pretty amazing kids while putting my project together. Read my article Changing the Narratives in Newhallville. Then take some time to explore the rest of the site. It has a variety of multi-media presentations from the rest of the class. Check them all out and post your comments.
