Mass Media Arts, 350
Professor James D. McJunkins
Clark Atlanta University
Hello and Welcome
My name is Corinne and this page showcases the work I completed for my Interpretative Reporting class (MMA 350) during the Spring 2020 semester at Clark Atlanta University.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, some adjustments happened while switching to online learning, but, like the school's motto, we found a way, or we made one.

Feature & Magazine Writing:
Action, Angle and Anecdotes, 3rd Edition
David E. Sumner and Holly G. Miller
"Feature & Magazine Writing" was the assigned textbook we were to read and reference while completing our assignments.
From this book, each student was assigned a chapter to present to the class. I was assigned chapter 3: Strong Angles and Focused Ideas.
Below is my 10-minute (13 Slides) presentation I prepared for the class which includes a participation slide for class engagement and to fully understand the concept of chapter 3.

During the presentation, I used the "Funnel of Focus" (slide 11) to demonstrate how to narrow down a broad topic. Then together, as a class, we went through the steps to create our own topic.
There were four stories assigned, 1 of which had to be a profile piece. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the last three stories were changed. Two of them changed to argumentative essays. The final story changed to a personal essay about how the COVID-19 Pandemic has disrupted our lives.
