Batsell will inform you Sunday night if you’ll summarize the winning #muckreads entry at the start of class on Tuesday. If selected, consider the following questions:
- What’s the upshot of the story?
- What impact is it having (or will it have)?
- Does it empower readers with online tools to dig deeper? How so?
