Covering Mental Health
Create your Own Social Media Post
In this scenario, you are the social media producer in your newsroom. Your editor has just assigned you to create a post that highlights the work of investigative journalist Nellie Bly, specifically her coverage of Blackwell’s Island, or prominent social reformer Dorothea Dix.
- Choose one of the photographs from the carousel by clicking on “Select Image.”
- Create your entry by describing Nellie Bly’s work at Blackwell’s Island or Dorothea Dix’s social reforms. You may have to conduct some additional online research on history websites your class has used or your teacher recommends.
- Then “post” comments in response to the initial entry. Practice digital citizenship (appropriate and responsible use of technology) by creating accurate and thoughtful posts and comments.
