A Twenty-Five Year Slice of the Secondary Education Division's Historical Pie.
Everton, Muriel; Butler, John M.
An honors lecture has been given each year since 1973 by a person chosen by the Secondary Education Division members of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC). Several lecturers have provided insights into each decade of scholastic journalism and its relationship to society. Lecturers have discussed four major points as current problems: recruitment of dedicated students, help and support for advisers, language skills, and the need for research in scholastic journalism. Conclusions drawn from advice given by the lecturers and analysis made of their suggestions indicate that Division members: (1) took the lead in preparing teachers of journalism who achieved much during the past 25 years; (2) wrote extensively in various publications about scholastic journalism; (3) remained on the cutting edges of computer instruction and graphic design principles and practices; (4) developed a stronger relationship with other divisions of AEJMC; (5) led the fight for teacher accreditation; (6) improved activities at summer workshops; and (7) studied ways to improve communication skills in word usage, sentence structure, and facts.
