Select one specific genre book, specific magazine, or specific news source that you read with at least some regularity (book cover, a current description of the book genre and an older description, a magazine/newspaper article or cover/front of a newspaper/magazine, the main website of a news outlet or magazine), and locate two of the examples it with one being current and other being 10 or more years old. For example, one current front page of a newspaper, and a front page of the same newspaper from 10 or more years ago.
Write a journal of 2 or more full double-spaced pages with 1 inch margins and 12 point font, using paragraphs for each response, responding to the following:
- Share links to the current example and the older example (if not clear share date or year each example).
- Think about the evolution of books, news, and magazines. Then describe two differences between the current example of the older example which connects what you read in the chapters.
- Explain one or two ways in which you think the current example is reflective of current technologies.
- Describe one or two ways in which you think the two examples reflect similar or changing societal values.
