Beginning Journalism


Alexa Stephens, Sword & Shield Advisor

Beginning Journalism students are introduced to journalism and the greater field of mass communications.  Students learn about digital citizenship and media literacy, communications law, and other contemporary mass media issues.

Additionally, students develop journalistic writing skills, the basics of photography and digital graphics, social media skills, page layout and podcasting.

The projects posted on this site in May/June are from Beginning Journalism students who had a semester to learn, create and polish their final article.
