High school journalists share the same objectives as professional reporters--finding the story, writing the story, and packaging the story so that it appeals to an audience. Understanding how to best accomplish these objectives is key to the student on the newspaper, yearbook or Web site staff, but the fundamental art of storytelling and story presentation are not always at the center of high school journalism classes. Student journalists must first understand that storytelling, at its most basic level, is about people, and that understanding the audience is essential in deciding how to present the story. This handbook for high school journalists and teachers offers practical tips for all elements of school journalism. The author covers the essential components that students must understand: information gathering, writing, standard and alternative coverage and packaging. Students will find valuable information about identifying news, interviewing, research, narrative writing style, editing, visual presentation and layout. The book also covers the legal rights of student journalists, objective vs. opinion writing, staff planning and organization and Web-based journalism. Each chapter includes study guides for practical applications of the concepts discussed.

This book provides teacher-tested tips on organizing, teaching journalism skills, layout, and publication for school newspaper advisors for grades 5-8. The book contains a variety of reproducibles and a handy glossary to help motivate real-life writing experiences. It also has computer clip art on a disc. The book notes that publishing a newspaper fulfills many of the needs of a good writing program and offers other benefits, among those: student and faculty readership provides a real audience on an ongoing basis; deadlines hold students responsible and accountable; editing and rewriting (process-writing skills) are important parts of newspaper work; and in school newspapers, students have a voice--responsible articles and editorials can impact their lives in school. The book offers sections on organizing the classroom, the students, and the newspaper, as well as many useful blank forms. The book also gives suggestions for layout and design, photography, generating--and funding--the newspaper, and a budget worksheet. A resource section gives a list of five organizations, three books, six software programs, and three companies that produce specially designed paper. (CR)
