This course is designed for students with a love of writing. Classroom instruction is centered around developing journalistic writing, objective style, and teaching In Design, layout, and editing skills. Students are responsible for producing the school newspaper, the Crown and Shield. Once the instructor has covered the basics of journalism, the class is run like a real newsroom and is primarily student-directed. Like Yearbook, this class can be taken several times during a student's four years. Students create printed and online issues of the newspaper.
