Journalism Project: Please read this before clicking on an icon!
The debut of Journalism class this year has been quite a journey. For their final project, students divided up into three groups of their choice. Each group had to choose one "tourist attraction" in Sparta to write about for one article. Then they brainstormed other topics to come up with three more per newsletter. Some students were very diligent in researching, writing, and editing. Please make a point of telling these students that you saw their work. Please encourage those who did well by praising them. This has been a learning experience for me and I hope it has been for the students as well. Enjoy!
