Description

Class Experience

Students will learn how to find a story, identify what makes a story a great news story, interview and write a news article. Elements of media literacy will be woven into the course to help students learn how to use credible sources, develop critical thinking skills and become sage media consumers. 
I have a Master of Arts in Journalism and I've worked as a reporter and editor for six years. I reported in Missouri, Washington, D.C., Argentina and California. I have also worked as a Managing Editor and Radio Producer. Over the past four years I built the Journalism Pathway at Da Vinci Schools. My students even won national journalism awards! :) I've loved journalism since high school and reported for my school newspaper in high school and in college. 
While homework is not necessary, bonus assignments will be provided in class for learners who are interested in additional learning outside of class. 
Learners will need a device for typing their article or may choose to handwrite. They may also choose to decorate their article with drawings, in which case they may want to use colored pencils, crayons or markers for decorating.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
All news topics and news sources selected for the course are age appropriate. News articles included in class have been selected from the following sources:
http://www.timeforkids.com
https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround
https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/kidspost/
http://www.newswela.com
Articles from these sources will be provided as examples of news articles and as part of the scavenger hunt. I will also screenshare the websites. An account is not required unless you would like the code to my Newsela classroom. This would grant your family access to the school appropriate website. 
I will ask students to write their articles on Google Docs as this is an easy platform for collaborative editing. Class surveys will be distributed via Google Forms. Students will also visit Kahoot for in-class trivia.
