My students are sophomores-seniors enrolled in a Journalism course studying everything from the 1st Amendment to media literacy in the digital age while producing a print, digital and multimedia publication. They come to this course with a variety of skills and ability levels, but they share one thing: a love of storytelling. Despite a range of age level, academic ability, and learning differences, the real world writing of journalism and the authentic audience has made them passionate about the power of Journalism as a career path.
They are reporters, reviewers, critics, the Fourth Estate and the future generation of Journalism.
Through Journalism, they engage in a variety of reporting techniques - from writing to editorial cartooning, to podcasting and video production. They seek to tell the stories of their peers, their school, their community, and their world.
Through the Sony camera and the Canon lens, my students will be able to take on additional multimodal storytelling techniques and projects.
Video is an integral aspect of modern journalism - the most viewed stories today are those that contain multimodal elements - with a video being the most impactful.
We will be able to live stream sporting and school events such as assemblies. This helps our school as a community by offering a service we otherwise couldn't provide. It allows family and friends to watch events out of town or students with sensory issues to be a part of the action
