Where I’ve Been…
So, it’s been awhile since my last blog post. The life of a teacher, coach, photographer, sponsor, organist, etc. has gotten in the way lately. I figured that while my students in digital journalism were blogging, I would go ahead and blog too!
This year my classes have changed dramatically. I’m still teaching all of the classes I taught last year – yearbook, newspaper, digital journalism, digital photography and 21st Century Media, but now I’ve added Computer Graphic Design, Introduction to Video and the Video Production classes to the mix.
With the addition of the classes (and no addition to the school hours) I’m teaching a few classes during some of my blocks. For example, my newspaper and video production classes meet during the same block. While sometimes this can be difficult, I’ve decided to turn this “negative” into a positive…and help my students become more prepared for the real world of journalism in the process.
Check out our first class production – with MANY more to come.
