Mapping a News Frame
Learning Objective
Learning Outcomes
After completing this exercise, you should understand the concept of framing and the benefits of concept mapping.
The primary objective of this exercise is to help you better define framing by connecting the abstract concept to a set of concrete news practices. A secondary objective of this exercise is to introduce you to concept mapping as a learning and self-assessment tool.

3.
Find an example (or examples) of the frame in the mainstream media using any of the newspaper full-text databases in our library (http://libguides.wwu.edu/newspapers) and analyze the selection, emphasis, and elaboration.
Find an alternative story in the alternative media (for example, search the websites of The Nation, The Progressive, In These Times, Mother Jones, or Rolling Stone) to help you determine what is excluded in the mainstream media example.
4.
Draw a concept map showing how an issue is framed by the news media showing examples of what is selected, emphasized, excluded, and elaborated. Name the frame and identify who benefits from the frame.
