As the journalism instructor at Berea High School, I work with a wide range of students - age, race, and income. Some students barely have access to a home computer, let alone a digital camera. As a part of the journalism curriculum, the students spend 1-2 weeks studying photography specifically, and then they spend the entire second nine weeks creating newsletters which require pictures. I would love for each student to have access to a digital camera to save them the money of having the pictures printed and then scanned. As a school, we have cameras for the yearbook staff, but those have a priority with yearbook demands. My goal is to collect as many digital cameras as possible to be reserved strictly for the journalism class. The students would be able to check them out whenever they needed them and not be limited to when the yearbook staff doesn't need the cameras. Since these students are just learning photography, the class does not require high-end cameras. As a result, I am requesting at least two point-and-shoot digital cameras. The students will greatly appreciate the flexibility that these extra cameras will allow!
