This 16 page posting offers a chronological order of lessons, by quarter, to teach beginning journalism students the basic concepts of journalistic writing such as What is News?, the various structures and genres of journalistic writing, interviewing, learning layout and design and studying media ethics. It offers lessons and activities that reinforce these concepts and prepares students to write and publish a top-quality high school newspaper. For veteran journalism students who publish a school newspaper, the lessons and activities offer reinforcement so they can add to their journalistic skills.
Each lesson offers a detailed summary, and links for the activities. Some of these forms are included in this packet. Links for reputable middle school and high school journalism sites, professional journalists' sites, and the Newseum are given, also.
Rookie and veteran journalism teachers will find these flexible lessons and activities a planning time gift.
