Murder was the case for six students enrolled in a “special topics” course I taught at Roosevelt University last spring. The task: to humanize “murder,” to report and to tell those stories in a compelling way as written narrative and also using multimedia. The agenda: to hone their journalistic skills and to engage in a transformative learning experience.
Roosevelt University undergraduates Nathan Lustig and Bailey Swinney are the winners of the 2013 Matthew Freeman Social Justice Award.
