Biography:

Professor Marie C. Franklin's work focuses on using print and online media to empower youth to express themselves in written and visually graphic journalism while making a positive difference in their communities. She wrote and edited education and youth related news for the Boston Globe newspaper for more than two decades and was the founding editor of the paper's Teens in Print section. From 1992-2002, Professor Franklin wrote as the lead reporter and columnist for the Globe's Sunday Learning section, profiling schools and teachers from around the region in her work. Her "Teaching Tools" column was nationally syndicated for many years.

In 2004, she began the Globe's Teens in Print section, bringing together Boston teens, the mayor's office, and The Boston Globe Foundation to publish the quarterly newspaper delivered to all Boston area high schools, youth centers, and branch libraries. She was also a frequent contributor to the Boston Sunday Globe and its travel and feature sections.

In her years prior to joining the Lasell faculty, she was an adjunct professor and newspaper advisor at Pine Manor College.
