A Research Agenda for Journalism in the Secondary Schools.
Lists of issues and research questions related to high school journalism, synthesized from survey responses of 21 journalism educators and from articles published in seven major journalism publications from 1974 through 1979, are presented in this paper. Questions are arranged according to four major categories, and questions from the literature and from the surveyed educators are listed separately. The four categories and some of their subdivisions are as follows: (1) student publications and the journalism class--publication content and format, staffing, evaluation of publications, business policies, effectiveness of the journalism program, and alternatives to traditional journalism experiences. (2) the publication adviser and journalism teacher--teaching methods and problems, adviser and teacher roles, sources of assistance, and adviser qualifications. (3) adviser and teacher training--the quality and content of training programs, and contact between teacher-trainers and advisers of teachers. (4) legal and ethical issues--the environment in which student publications are published, censorship guidelines and policies, sources of information and assistance, and the extent of legal and ethical problems. The paper concludes by summarizing concerns and research needs related to high school journalism. (GT)
