A Model for Short-Term Training of High School Publications Advisers.
Click, John William
A model for the short-term training of high school publications advisers, and the procedures used in developing it, are described in this paper. The paper first outlines survey techniques used to obtain advisers' rankings of 53 statements about their professional needs and reports the statements and their rankings by advisers. Procedures are then described that were used after the completion of the survey in developing principles for advising publications staffs and for training publications advisers and in having the principles validated by an expert jury. The principles are listed, and the jury's rating of their relative importance is noted. Finally, the training model, which lists both competencies to be developed and suggested methods for developing them, is presented. The following 11 instructional components of the model are described separately: news judgment, news gathering, and news writing; editing and design; professional practices; student publication law; relations with persons not on the staff; production techniques; business and finance; advertising; relations with the staff; photojournalism; and writing (other than news). Practical considerations are then dealt with in relation to such aspects of the training situation as duration, leadership, facilities, instructional techniques, form, and enrollment. (GW)
