The purpose of this course is to provide students with an opportunity to learn, practice, and/or reinforce skills involved in the production of a school newspaper/yearbook. Students will serve as members of the Jeannette High School Newspaper/Yearbook and will contribute to the school’s production of The Bird Call and/or The Jayhawk. Students will practice research and writing skills, with a focus on descriptive writing and English grammar and usage to effectively convey and report the events of the school year. Students will work both independently and cooperatively, in and out of the classroom setting, on various assignments. Students will be expected to possess effective time-management and organizational skills, leadership and responsibility, and an ambitious work ethic in an effort to meet deadlines involved in the process.
