PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Because it is important for a school newspaper to cover cover all of the clubs and activities a middle or high school offers, this Beat Sheet presents a succinct way for journalism students to find story ideas they can develop. Sometimes the info is quite brief, i.e. an announcement of up-coming events, so it is summarized in a column set aside for that purpose. Other times, the information sparks ideas for a news or feature piece. The Beat Sheet is an excellent way for newspaper staffs to find ideas and to plan for the next issue. Also, it offers first year students a chance to write for the paper, insuring their desire to remain a part of the journalism scene throughout their high school careers.

This was a lifesaver for me and for the newspaper staff. The various section editors always found good stories to pursue from this activity. Thank you for your support.

simple! thanks
On  January 22, 2013Connie answered:
Yes, it is simple, but it really focuses the students on how to be responsible for a specific sector of school society and what kind of information they need to collect. Thank you for your purchase.

I used this with a newspaper project I assigned to my Communications students. It really helped guide them through the process. Thanks!
On  June 19, 2012Connie answered:
This was a must do when I was the newspaper teacher/sponsor. Too many areas of the school were not being covered in the paper. This helped to insure that the newspaper was reporting on all aspects of the school community. I'm glad that it worked for you. Thanks for buying it.
