Springboard to Journalism: A Study Guide in School Newspaper Practices. Revised Edition.
Allnutt, Benjamin W., Ed.
This book is the sixth edition of a study guide designed to help students develop essential communication skills for writing school newspapers and to assist advisers in training staffs for these newspapers. The book can be used in the junior and senior high school and can be adapted to other levels. It can be used in schools with formal journalism courses and in schools with a paper produced by a club or by volunteers. Each unit on journalistic writing contains four sections: "An Overview" introduces the topic; "Suggestions to the Teacher" lists activities to be used in teaching essential skills; "Essential Subject Matter to be Mastered" presents the subject content which experienced advisers have found most helpful to students; and "Activities" contains suggestions for increasing student proficiency. A special section, "Legal Rights and Responsibilities of the Student Press," and selected journalism bibliography are included. (Author/DI)
