Journalism: Using Your Voice

The importance of journalists in today’s world cannot be overstated.  Reporters decide what we do and do not see and whose voices are heard or not heard.  How did journalists such as Lester Holt, Christiane Amanpour and Anderson Cooper become so influential?  In this class, students will learn how to ask the right questions, organize information and find details.  You will see how to format stories and edit articles to make them interesting and easy to read for print and online publications.  We will also explore the fast-paced world of broadcast journalism through storyboarding, script writing and perhaps our own news show!  Student interest and current events will guide our exploration as students share their unique voices through writing and reporting.
