Often schools, districts, and states do not have standards for a journalism class, but teachers are required to use standards-based grading. This product is a comprehensive list of standards for a high school journalism course to use as a basis for lesson planning, grading, and communication with students. When teachers have published standards, students know what to do to be successful in the course.
These standards are in student-friendly language, they are numbered for ease of communication, and they are categorized into the basic areas of publication. Use this to help you design a journalism curriculum for a high school level. *Editable document!
