We Have Issues: Why Classical Christian Schools Should Have Strong Journalism Departments

We teach a lot of Rhetoric in classical schools, and put it to good use through writing and thesis presentations. However, there is an argument to be made for using those same skills to produce a Rhetoric School publication for and by the student body. These publications benefit the school and the student. In this session, the basics of starting a Journalism program are presented to help a school get on the way to producing a publication of its own. Whether you are exhibiting art and writing in a literary magazine, or jumping into the fray of modern journalism, this class can teach students how to lead, work on a team, and produce something for which they and their school can be proud.
