Visit to NGP and Diamond Head Hike

In Honolulu we will visit the NPR station in Hawaii for a tour and meeting with journalists there. The local NPR station prepares its own shows as well as playing Morning Edition and All Things Considered. We will then hike the Diamond Head volcano crater (about an hour and a half round-trip) and meet the author of a book on Diamond Head. Students will write a story based on the day’s experience.

Academic Objectives:
1. Discuss media ethics with working journalists.
2. Tour an NPR station.
3. Meet author of book on Diamond Head.
