Dana & Josh researched two columnists by following their work for several months. They created a blog to write up their analysis of specific columns by Steve Huntley of the Chicago Sun Times and Rekha Basu of the Des Moines Register.
Both Grinnell teams participated in a public presentation on November 4, 2012 at the Drake Community Library, the public library in Grinnell, Iowa. A small, but enthusiastic, audience of various community members was in attendance. The students presented their findings for the first 25 minutes and a very good 35-minute discussion was generated by questions from the audience. The students gained a great deal from this experience and truly appreciated the opportunity.
