    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Yes! I would recommend it for sure because it was so fun!! I was a photographer for my school newspaper and i had a blast! It was challenging at times because I took a lot of pictures of people and I would have to go hunt them down and pull them out of class. I also learned how to write news articles etc. Overall I would recommend this class because I learned many different skills that are going to be useful in my future!!

    Course highlights:

    I participated in many school activities and my school spirit was increased! I learned how to make a newspaper and the proper grammar and writing techniques used for it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice to anyone taking this class would be to stay on top of things and don't procrastinate. The deadlines come up quick and you will be glad you stayed ahead of them!!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a fantastic class for anyone who would like to try it. Some are under the false impression that you must be a writer in order to join. That is not true at all! On our Journalism team last year, we had all kinds of jobs: design, layout, photography, art illustrations, typesetters, etc. There are so many different things to do that anyone who wants to try Journalism could fit in somewhere. Putting out the school newspaper, that finished product, really ignites a sense of pride. Knowing that you contributed to something so important is really incredible.

    Course highlights:

    In taking this course, I learned the true value and meaning behind the phrase "team work." Everyone pitches in their ideas and their strengths to make the paper better with every single issue that's released. I think it taught me some valuable lessons about having a real job with deadlines. The newspaper is on a tight schedule, just like many aspects of the real world. If you don't do what you were assigned within a specific time frame, it could really hurt everyone else.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I'm going to be honest here: Journalism is not an easy class. If you're looking for a basket-weaving type class to fill some extra credits and get an A, this isn't what you're looking for. Often, you'll only have one-two weeks to interview and put together your articles. It takes some time outside of school and some legitimate effort on your part. That being said, it is all worth it in the end. You'll become more organized and effective. If you're more introverted, it will force you to move out of your comfort zone and experience new perspectives, to talk to new people. Journalism is refreshing and fun all around.
