Syllabus Exchange

Sponsored by BEA

The Syllabus Exchange, in partnership with the Broadcast Education Association, gives educators a way to enhance their curriculum by sharing ideas and teaching materials. Our goal is to provide a database of course syllabi, assignments, exercises and other teaching materials that can be shared. Our focus is in the area of journalism, electronic media and communication studies. We welcome not only editorial-sequence syllabi but also those from related fields, such as advertising and public relations. We also welcome high school and other teachers.

While we review each upload for appropriate content, we don't edit or warrant the material.

Here's how it works. When you share a syllabus, assignment or other teaching material, you'll receive 100 Poynter NewsU Training Points. To download a training resource, you will need 50 points [for each resource]. To get everyone started, we are giving every registered user at Poynter's NewsU 100 points. That means you can download two resources before you start sharing.

  • Race, Gender and Media

    This course teaches students how to study patterns of media portrayals. Students also learn the history of these patterns and ways they become interwoven in media structures, then indoctrinated to journalists and other media workers. Students employ research methods to scrutinize media texts through qualitative and quantitative content analysis, social and oral history, semiotics, and theme analyses. We discuss race and gender as well as representations and coverage of sexualities and sexual orientation, economic class and people with disabilities.
