Interpretative Reporting

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" 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. 

Click on the slide deck to see the full presentation or click HERE for the Google Slide presentation.

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. 

Writing Assignments:

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.
