Writing for Media and Publication


Learning to write for a publication provides opportunities to develop a variety of useful skills: speed, clarity, conciseness in writing, confidence in meeting and talking with strangers, critical thinking, and realistic long-range time management. Students are encouraged to write for the school newspaper, but it is not required. Students will study news, feature, sports, editorial writing, interview techniques, editing skills, current events, basic photography, and page design. Students selecting this course should have at least average spelling and grammar skills.
