My Journalism students are a diverse mix of ethnic backgrounds, experiences, capabilities and ages. All levels can enroll in Journalism and that usually makes for a creative and curious bunch every year! We are a morning class, that meets daily, striving to bring the news by way of our school newspaper, The Lion's Roar, to our school. Our newspaper started back in the late 1970's, then took a hiatus, to return as a club of interested students several years ago. We have since grown the interest the last several years into an offered class.
A picture is worth a thousand words! We focus on getting the story and honing the writing craft in our journalism class but just as much attention should be placed on capturing the right picture. If we had a good quality camera to use for sports, dances and other action shots it would improve and strengthen the story. This is also a possible career interest for high school students and might inspire a photography interest. Please help our school secure a quality camera for our newspaper staff. We look forward to building skills around the proper use of a camera.
