A Newspaper for the Middle School.
Hatch, Martha
The author describes her experiences as the faculty advisor for the newly created monthly student newspaper in her secondary school. Originally, student interest in the project was evaluated and care exercised to avoid too large a task group. Lead stories included editorial opinion concerning controversial issues in the school, club news, interviews with new teachers, reviews of television programs and movies, sports coverage, and so on. The role of faculty advisor as motivator and director of student output is stressed, and the total experience of writing and publishing the paper is viewed as an important exercise in written and spoken communication.
