Journalistic writing must be guided by strong ethics along with accuracy, balance, and concision. As a high school journalism teacher and/or publication adviser, it's essential to have strong ethics guidelines for print, online, and social media to guide students and staff.
The following resources are included in this modifiable Word document:
*Basic rules and ethics handout (a great place to start the conversation with students. I also post this succinct, easy-to-understand handout around the publications room)
*High School Journalism Code of Ethics handout (I created this code based on the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics, but it focuses on the ethics that apply to scholastic journalists)
*Social Media Policy (This handout can become part of your staff manual or work as part of how you teach social media engagement. Includes guidelines for breaking news, promoting online content, and retweeting)
*Social Media Guidelines & Contract (I use this with all staff members who have access to the publication's social media accounts).
