We all have stories to tell. In this course, we’ll learn how to dig deep into those stories by asking the right questions, organizing our information, and finding the details. Through print and online journalism inquiry, we will determine what makes for quality, hard-hitting news stories and thought-provoking features and editorials, and then write our own! Students will also have the opportunity to explore the fast-paced and flashy world of broadcast journalism through storyboarding, script writing, and a morning news show. Current events and student interest will guide our exploration as students share their unique voice and interests through writing and reporting.
