3690: A Journal of First-Year Student Research Writing

Volume 2015 (2015)

Issue Summary

Ellen LaPointe delves into the murder of legal scholar Mary Joe Frug, using journalistic methods to learn the extent to which Frug’s feminist politics may have contributed to her death. Claire Sauter uses the research on young adult literature to show how teachers can better engage students and bridge the distance between students’ lives and the books they are required to read. Finally, Brian Verbickas examines whether it is ethical for drug companies to potentially skew the healthcare process and engage in direct-to-consumer advertising.
