My Students

The students in my journalism class show a great deal of initiative and truly want to find ways to aid our society. Many have faced a multitude of obstacles in their lives but remain resolute in graduating, going to college, and truly living the American dream.

My students see journalism as an avenue to better society and expose that which harms our collective human spirit.

We are a largely immigrant school, and many of my students arrived from nations where the concept of an independent press was/is foreign.

My students are passionate at reporting the news and writing editorials that can motivate and advocate for change. They are angered by the attack on the field of journalism and the false use of the term "fake news" when it is attached to reputible news agencies.

My Project

The students in my journalism class have a deep interest in the field of journalism and using this medium to educate and advocate for the voiceless. However, in order to be effective journalists, my students need a solid foundation in current events.

This NY Times Upfront Magazine will provide me the opportunity to engage my students in key aspects of current events and to inspire debates which will allow them to become more thorough journalists.

Such materials from the NY Times help to provide multiple perspectives on issues and will encourage students to ponder vital issues on a myriad of levels.

Students will work collaboratively on the issues brought up by the magazine and produce news stories that expand on what they read.
