We worked on your first issue.
Issue One Due Dates:
Today we created section posters outline the important aspects of each section. We then worked on brainstorming article ideas for our first issue! You can find you sections here.
Today we took our last notes (I promise) on the writing/creation of a newspaper. We took notes on photographs and writing captions, and other basic style rules for writing a newspaper article. Please see the Journalism Style PP for all the notes.
Today we continued our section notes with sports, entertainment, and opinion writing (see slides 38-62 for the notes). We ended the period creating an editorial cartoon (slide 63). These are due tomorrow. Don't forget to turn in your signed syllabus by Friday!
Today we shared our news articles and talked about what we want from journalism and The Forum. Don't forget to bring in your signed syllabus by next Friday!
Today we continued getting to know each other and the class by finishing the survey questions from yesterday. We then discussed what we want the newspaper to look like (slide 11), went over the district policies for journalism in the high school (slide 12 and document), and then started researching an article to share in class tomorrow (slide 13). Don't foget to bring the signed syllabus by next Friday!
