Summary
This journalism master's project includes a professional work component and an analysis component. The professional work component details the author's experiences working as a graphic journalist on "The American Next" project for the Columbia Missourian. The author created a series of interactive information graphics using Javascript for a series of stories that focused on "what the American Dream means to people between the ages of 16-35, and how they are going about trying to achieve their version of the American Dream." (p. 10) This project was part of a special master's class in partnership with the Public Insight Network of American Public Media. (p. 32) Infographics illustrated the relationships between race, education level, health insurance coverage, poverty, and unemployment by Missouri county. Includes field notes and examples of work. In the analysis component the author examines the current practices of using refers or teasers to connect readers of print newspapers to the news outlet's website. The author interviews the front-page designers at seven national and regional newspapers about "their publication's efforts concerning print refers to online content" and discovered that while each newspaper used print refers differently, the use of QR codes is "growing, with mixed success" and "larger papers tend to think about the usefulness and value of refers more than small regional papers" (p. 64). Includes a literature review and interview notes. Also includes article written by author entitled "Getting readers from print to web : the use of teasers to online content in print newspapers."
