This two-week, three-credit course on advanced journalism skills is designed to provide high school journalism teachers with new tools for updating their student newspapers and magazines. Teachers will learn how to harness their students’ smartphone, video and social media abilities in a journalistic form to create or bolster online news products. The class will produce a digital project showcasing the skills taught.
