Playful Tools for Thinking and Doing 

Activity cards are playful tools to use in the classroom, with bite-sized prompts to guide your exploration of the Journalism + Design process through a storytelling project.

The cards are organized around the J+D design process. They walk you through the steps in each stage, with key questions to ask yourself as you go along.

 

THE DECK
The deck features three types of cards: Process cards, Reference cards, and Constraint cards.

PROCESS CARDS
Prompts for students and journalists throughout the process of writing a story, from initial research to post-publication reflections.

 

REFERENCE CARDS
Detailed explanations of design principles and systems thinking concepts for journalists.

CONSTRAINT CARDS
Working within strict limits helps journalism students focus on what's essential. For in-class or take-home assignments.
