JMC 50002 Reporting for Mass Media - 3 Hours
Because we believe teachers have to be able to DO before they can TEACH, this course is required of everyone seeking the master's degree for scholastic media educators. This course contains students with a variety of backgrounds in prior journalistic writing courses and with a variety of previous experience – both as commercial journalists and as scholastic journalism teachers/advisers. Sometimes, the material presented here will be review. When that is the case, students quickly brush up on the concepts and then focus on how they will most effectively teach these concepts to their students. Scholastic journalism teachers/advisers have tried and true classroom techniques to share with classmates, but they will also stretch their imaginations to develop new and perhaps even better ways to teach these concepts to their students.
