Peg Acheterman
Achterman’s Article Published

An article by Assistant Professor of Communication and Journalism Peg Achterman about a recent storytelling project in her journalism class was published online at’s Media Shift, which focuses on digital media. The article was titled "Remix: How to Teach Story-Finding Skills.” Peg explains the project: "As educators, how do we help these young journalists develop a sense of wonder and curiosity about the world around them? (For the exercise), each student would get a bus route assignment plus the challenge to find stories surrounding it. I’m a fan of the Seattle Metro system and spent quite a while on maps in search of routes that would get my students into the more diverse parts of the city. The exercise attempts to get students thinking about the types of stories they would tell, so each student produced one text story, one audio story, one photo essay, one video story, and one infographic. This gives each group 25 stories to choose from in the end and each has to stretch to do something challenging."

Assistant Provost and Professor of Psychology Margaret Brown co-authored an article titled “Service Learning and the Psychologically Literate Citizen” in the September issue of Psychology Teacher Network, a quarterly publication of the American Psychological Association Education Directorate.
