Furthermore, we receive feedback nearly every day about the site; here are just a few of the responses we’ve received:
- “This is a terrific resource. Kudos for developing it. You have some great material.”
Walter V. Robinson, Northeastern University
- “I love your site. I organize my course around students’ finding their own study and research topic, and that’s where they look at what you have posted on your site. They then write an inverted pyramid news story about the study’s findings. From there they expand their topic and write a short feature and an in-depth feature.”
Janet Mizrahi, UC Santa Barbara
- “Your syllabus has proved quite helpful — I’m a happy user. I’ve synthesized it liberally with other sources, including a syllabus from a Baruch colleague, and my own concepts from a 45-year career at The New York Times.”
Ralph Blumenthal, City University of New York
- “I’ve found Journalist’s Resource to be a great tool, both as a reporter and now teaching at Stonehill. And the help I’ve gotten from the folks when I’ve been hunting for information has been terrific.”
Maureen Boyle, Stonehill College
