 COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

Journalism I (period 2, period 7) classes allow students to learn and understand the work involved in being a journalist while striving to make them more media savvy. There's a heavy emphasis on styles of writing for newspaper, Internet and broadcast. Page design, photography, aspects of advertising, public relations and Internet journalism are also studied in JI.

Photojournalism (period 1,4,5,6) classes thoroughly cover the history, present and future of photojournalism. Students are not required to own a camera but are expected to write and will use digital cameras. Current events are also emphasized. 

Journalism II, III, IV - (period 3) Journalism I or Photojournalism are prerequisites (either course will do). Students produce the Owls' Nest and yearbook annually, employing the same skills and equipment used in professional media.

 

I will have my conference period during 8th period and am happy to meet with parents or anyone who cares to meet with me then.
