Election news and views from JCU

How do you motivate young people to become involved in the voting process? One way is through class assignments.

As part of their first journalism course, Carrie Buchanan, assistant professor of communications at John Carroll University, had her students interview local candidates and report on events related to the upcoming elections.

Some interviewed candidates; others attended debate parties and other events, then filed their reports.

The stories were all written and edited by Carrie Buchanan and her students. Contact Professor Buchanan at cbuchanan@jcu.edu.
