The Compass- New Directions in Student Journalism

Posted: July 19, 2010 in Uncategorized

Let's Get StartedWelcome to my blog site where we can learn together how to work toward publishing stories about our community online. This site will help you learn the basics of journalism so we can produce a quality publication that can be shared with our school and local community. We will learn about writing, design, interviewing, photojournalism, and more. Together we will produce The Compass, an online publication for West High School in Traverse City. So, let’s put on our journalism hats and work together to create a great publication.

First, let’s look at how powerful student journalism can be by watching a high school journalism student talk with a senator.

    Wow. That’s powerful. The politician uses two of the classic moves when confronted with information that makes him look bad. 1) The “I don’t recall” defense, and 2) The “Excuse me for one minute” escape. The kid handled the whole thing with class, respect, and poise. Well done.

    Hi Mrs. Hansen, I was wondering what the URL is for the Compass. I am trying to add it to my links. But I can’t find it anywhere. Or is there and easier way to find it? THanks!!
    And I am super excited for The Compass!!
