Students must write a journalistic article of a specific type starting from one of the tracks proposed by the teacher.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and in accordance with the University of Verona guidelines, during the 2020 summer session the assessment modality will be modified as follows: uploading on the e-learning platform of at least seven papers (newspaper articles) among those assigned during each of the nine lessons of the Laboratory. Each upload will be followed first by the correction and evaluation of the single article and later by the approval of all the papers and the verbalization of the outcome of the Journalism Writing Laboratory, according to the proposed calendar.
