My topic is Alcatraz; I think it is a very interesting topic, especially when you start to look at the infamous prisoners and its intriguing legends. The down side about having a topic that doesn’t have much recent news is that i am more limited when it comes to finding information. Many of the search engines we have used as a class have not been very helpful to me. Twitter/blogs did not have anything about the history of Alcatraz and most of the posts/tweets were about the TV show. I have also learned that much of the recent news that I could use is about events that will be going on at Alcatraz island within the next few weeks. So I would say I have definitely had to branch out when it comes to research with this topic. All in all though I still enjoy learning about Alcatraz and its legends.
