THE 5TH MEDIA MONITOR OF THE FIRST CLASS HERE
The fifth media monitor of the first class can be posted here with the usual deadline on Wednesday 5pm (Sept. 26 here)
In addition to the 12 choices of bonus topics provided last August, any class member who attended any of the U.P. Day of Remembrance activities whether on-campus or off-campus or the September 20 multimedia presentation may review said event as outdoor media using the ethical standards on advocacy work provided last August 31, with the following instructions: 1)For Day-of-Remembrance activities, pls provide a photo showing your attendance by posting it with your comment (or pasting its link) or by emailing the material; for the Sept. 20 activity, if you are not in any of the group photos, pls state “see attendance sheet” if you signed it; or send a selfie of said activity; then 2) Review said event as outdoor media using the ethical standards on advocacy work provided last August 31. This will be counted as bonus even if you have already submitted a post on “Advocacy”.
For those who are too lazy to look at the media monitor instructions given last August 31, here they are again: Derived from a leading internationally known public relations society as applicable to advocacy work (the paragraph being used as basis of the review/evaluation should be quoted)

Any of the bonus titles (more than 12 choices have been given) can be used in any week provided only one media monitor post can be submitted every week (in order to build the habit among class members of reading and viewing media content with discernment). No bonus topic can be repeated except as stated above (on U.P. Day of Remembrance).
A happy new week everyone!
