This curriculum guide was developed by a committee organized to produce a common course in journalism for Kentucky secondary schools. The committee's primary goals were to make the journalism course (1) consumer oriented in order to help students become intelligent consumers of media products, and (2) all inclusive in terms of giving attention to all media in proportion to their role in serving today's society. The nine units in the course guide cover the following areas: the communication process, the information and editing function, the interpretative function, the opinion function, the entertainment function, the economic function, historical development of the media, freedom, responsibility, and control of the media, and intelligent use of the media.
