Welcome to the wonderful world of journalism!
Interesting in being part of a publications class (yearbook or newspaper) and learning real-world skills? Enroll in Journalism I or Photojournalism to begin your journey and be prepared for the next step.
Students in my classes will learn the graphic design, photography and writing skills using professional software - Adobe InDesign CS6, Photoshop CS6 and Adobe Bridge on desktop Mac computers.
Journalism 1 students should bring plenty of paper and pen every day for notes. They should also have a notebook with folders to store handouts. A flash drive is helpful to save assignments.
Photojournalism students must each purchase a memory card before they will have access to any classroom cameras during the school day. We do not have enough classroom cameras for every photojournalism student so students are encouraged to bring a camera for every class. Classroom cameras will be loaned to students an as-needed basis only. Students will not be able to use them if they do not have their own SD card (memory card). Students should bring the card and a camera to class EVERY DAY. Cameras can be typical "point-and-shoot" types or phones, or digital SLR cameras. If students choose to use their smart phones, they must carry a cord to upload the photos to the computer for editing purposes.
