Lehigh University – Marcellus Shale Blog

Another project worth investigating is a  blog created by students in Lehigh University’s Environmental Initiative. If you happened to see the Monday screening of either Gasland 2 or Fracknation, you know that fracking is a hot topic. The student blog, “Marcellus Shale” is an outcome of the work completed in “Environment, the Public and the Mass Media,” (Jour/ES 125) writing intensive course taught by Prof. Sharon M. Friedman, director of Lehigh’s Science and Environmental Writing Program in the Department of Journalism and Communication.

The work of this course is communicated in a compelling way on this blog. Kudos to the students and to the faculty and staff who supported the effort. This is a great example of not only leading in research, but also making learning relevant to a greater community.
