OUR MEDIA LITERACY CLASS WENT TO THE WYOMING TRIBUTE EAGLE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT PRINTING, JOURNALISM, NEWS REPORTING, AND THE BUSINESS FIELD OF JOURNALISM. THIS WAS IN CHEYENNE WYOMING. THE WORKERS WERE HAPPY AND READY TO GIVE US A TOUR.

 

The environment is very welcoming and helping, but it is also very busy. The workers work as a team to get things done. There is a lot of tasks and most of it is completed by machines.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I like this picture because it shows the work space. The machines show that the work is done chronologically.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is our class in front of the ink/printing press.

I took a picture of the newspapers because that’s the general idea of the job, which is to sent out what is happening, through newspapers, books, advertising, media, and so much more. The black books are stored for memories. They are from year to year, which I thought was nostalgic.

The picture on the left is a cutter. The tourists told us it’s very dangerous, and people should be cautious of their hand placing. On right, it’s a printer. It’s quite expense and valuable.

Some of the books and newspapers. It gives you an overall idea of how they advertise and represent themselves through journalism. They use color and visuals.

There is advertisers, designers, writers, photographers, and more. The editors and reporters work 24 hours a day to keep the news cycle going. The printing press speed is super quick.

The paper rolls that the newspaper is printed on are each 15 miles long, and they weigh half a ton.
The multiple colors of ink for newspapers has to be layered properly, and consistency is necessary.
A nice group of ladies talked to us briefly about their jobs.

Photos

This is a picture of a bone that wasn’t specified. I think it’s reverting just because of how big it is. Behind it, there is a shadow that made the picture look cool; I also liked the lighting in the room too.
I was told that this room always sustains art work inside. I was a little upset, and I expected more.
Look at all the green. This was on the campus. I’ll let the picture explain.
The sky was so blue, the plants were so green, everyone had a happy face. The lighting was literally blessing this picture.
A couple of friends exploring on the campus. ~>
The foot and filter gave this a dramatic look. I thought it would be a cool photo to take.

It might seem like there is nothing going on in this picture. It’s just a bench, and no one is sitting on it, but you can use your imagination. It’s free to do so.

 

HSI Experience

This is the link to UW

The University of Wyoming building. The campus has a lot of buildings, but overall it’s a good size. It’s easier to navigate, than if you were to go to a campus that is in a bigger town or city. There are opportunities that meet every individual’s interests.

The University of Wyoming is a great campus for opportunities and learning. Students will be welcomed and greeted into their school, so that they can feel comfortable and at home. I am excited to be involved in the High School Summer Institute program because it’s engaging and informative. I have learned a lot about college life. A tour of the university was presented as students played a game of scavenger; now I am more familiar with the school. This has helped my fear of getting lost in the school, and curiosity.

At the High School Summer Institute, I have met new friends and I am ready to learn about the subjects that they assigned me. My classes are Media Literacy and Substanly Built Environment. I love literature and social media, so I might enjoy media literacy. My science class will be interesting to me because I am curious to know more about Architectural engineering. These following weeks, I hope to learn how I interact with new people. This experience has been really fun; and I was not disappointed. It’s how I expected everything to be like, but the rules are tight/strict. They mess up everything because sometimes you might need a phone for a class, but since phones are prohibited, you forget.

I am looking forward to many things. I am looking forward to photography, inspiration, and new ideas for blogs. When I looked at past blogs, they gave me an essence of blogging. What surprised me was the quality of writing. The HSI students do not value paragraph organization and introductions, this takes away the idea of perfecting. I don’t have to be pressured for a good enough blog. Anyone can add their own twists and make blogs their own.
