Wall Street Journal.
I greatly enjoyed reading the Wall Street Journal in class instead of a text book. A text book does have important information of course but the newspaper keeps you in the loop of current things and all the many changes going on in society. I believe reading the newspaper was an effective learning method for being informed about mass communication. I really enjoy the odd ball stories in the front page because some of them were really entertaining. I also like to learn about new technology and the new innovations and changes taking place in the media. During the course of the semester I stayed on top of what was going on,every time I turned on the TV and they mentioned something I have read before it was a good feeling to know what they were talking about and learn about the new developments in the stories. I also like the Internet access option because you have the opportunity to find out more about the stories because online the content is bigger and includes more details that may not have made it to the printer. I think it was a good learning experience for the students because sometimes reading a text book can be really boring but reading the newspaper it gives you a variety of topics that you can relate to. In my case I think old habits die hard and even if we are done with the paper I still open it and look through it and read some of the stories, when it comes to renewing my subscription I think that if I have the means to it I would do it. I enjoy reading and I like the paper so yes more than likely I will try to renew.
