3 YAG Journalism Introduction to Journalism (2 weeks) Description: Journalism is the investigation and reporting of events, issues and trends to a broad audience. In modern times journalism has grown to incorporate a world that is highly based in technology. It benefits students to learn about journalism for various reasons. For one, it is a possible career path for many students. Secondly, it is important for students to understand the various ways in which they can obtain information for their daily lives. When they learn the main aspects to journalism they will not only be able to write examples of it in order to express themselves, but more fully understand where to get this information from. Students will be introduced to the various forms of journalism such as: new media, mass media, internet, e-readers, smart phones, newspapers, magazines and television. The beginning of this class will focus on the major concepts of journalism, especially the concept of the inverted pyramid and the difference between journalistic writing and creative writing, and the various forms so that the students have a basic understanding from which to build on. Yearbook Construction (6 weeks) Description: One of the major journalism projects of any school year is producing the school s annual yearbook. The yearbook is a historical document and the production of such should be in a true journalistic manner. In journalism class the students will be given instruction on how a yearbook is constructed, what goes into the production and how to assist in the writing of the yearbook themselves. Every section of the yearbook contains written sections which report on the ongoing school year. It is this writing that the students of the journalism class will be responsible for doing. Technology in Journalism (4 weeks) Description: Computers have changed the way journalism has been reported, written and distributed. Advancements in technology continue to change the world of reporting and students need to be familiar with this if they are going to be studying the discipline. The world of blogs, social media and online newspapers are the reality of what journalism is today. These are the areas in which the students will be introduced during the duration of this unit.
