Cool Links #5: Potpourri

I haven’t done a cool links in a while, but I ran across some cool stuff in the last day or two.  So, here goes –

The Canadian Journalism Project has a great post called 10 Rules of Writing News For TV.  This is a must read for any HS broadcast student or teacher.

Slate magazine has a thought provoking entry titled What’s Really Killing Newspapers.  Hint – social media and the internet. Are you really surprised?  But it is a good read.

This touching story was Tweeted to me via Twitter.  I couldn’t stop reading it.  The St. Pete Times is always really good at long form, narrative journalism.  This is why newspapers must survive in some form.

If you teach middle, high school or college – then this study from MIT on their brain’s is a must read.  OK, I know half of you are writing it off as too hard already, but it is well designed, easy to read and informative.
