Journalists in the Making

My students need 10 copies of journalism's know-it-all book: The Associated Press (AP) Style Guide.

1 teacher, 1 scanner, 2 printers, 8 sophomore and junior high school students, 10 computers...in a Newspaper Publication class...with no books! We're located just an hour outside of the hustling, bustling media blitz in the nation's capital, but the class, which is offered by our public school system, must fund itself.

How can my students become the journalists they dream of being, without knowing the rules that guide the world of journalism? Learning The Associated Press (AP) style of writing is the key to their success.

There's an easy solution: My students need copies of the Associated Press Style Guide. This book is considered to be the "Bible" of journalism.

Your support will help make the young teenage journalists of today, tomorrow's hard-working, wide-eyed, trustworthy, hard-news-capturing, knowledgeable, ethical and professional newswriters.
