This project is one of two major projects students complete in a Writing and Design for Digital Media class. In this lesson, I provide the project overview, rationale, assignment description, and teaching materials. This project can be incorporated into various media studies courses in mass communications, online journalism and digital humanities at the sophomores and junior levels. The goal of this lesson is to introduce media convergence and explore how media convergence blurs various social, institutional, and cultural boundaries.
