Investigative Journalists: The Muckrakers
Create your Own Social Media Post
In this scenario, you are the social media producer in your newsroom. Your editor has given you an assignment to create a post highlighting the journalistic contributions of one of the muckrakers. You can choose one of the muckrakers you are familiar with in this case study or decide on another muckraker from the carousel.
First, choose one of the muckrakers you’d like to feature from the carousel by clicking on “Select Image.” You will write the original social media post and create your own comments. Use what you have learned in the case study and conduct some additional research, if needed. Keep in mind that thoughtful social media posts will engage the reader.
