Keeping Pace With the Changing Times: Updating Both Advisers' and Students' Skills in the Journalism Laboratory.
Sullivan, Dolores P.
Several notable high school journalism advisers and instructors were surveyed to find out how they were able to stay updated on changes in press law and print technology, while also teaching classes in news writing and production techniques and overseeing production of each issue of their school publication. Most respondents said that they read typesetting and printing trade publications, and spoke frequently with printers and publishers to keep informed of printing and publication trends. Many also attended national journalism conventions, seminars, and workshops to share ideas. They all subscribed to the Student Press Law Center "Report" to stay aware of censorship laws and cases. Most of the respondents helped their advanced students polish skills by assigning an oral and written critique of each issue of their publication, by providing copies of pertinent articles from scholastic and professional print media, by providing opportunities for students to engage in public relations activities for the school, and by providing opportunities for them to attend summer workshops.
