English Language Arts - Journalism Activities Simplify Teacher Planning

By: Constance D. Casserly
Grades 6-12

"It's that time of year
When Fall course schedules appear,
And some teachers scramble to see
If newspaper sponsors they will be."

Whether you have chosen to take on the responsibility of teaching journalism and sponsoring the school newspaper, or whether you have been asked to do so, between now and the opening of a new school year, your emotions will run the gamut from , "I can't wait!" to "What did I do?".

Saying, "Yes," to shouldering any new course, no matter the subject area can subdue the staunchest classroom leader, but taking on the obligation of a publishing class can be downright daunting.

For some relief from all of your concerns about creating lessons, check out my detailed blog post and find links to  a number of journalism products that I sell separately, as well as a Journalism Activities Bundle that includes 15 complete lessons and activities($).

As Edward R. Murrow would say, 
"Good night and good luck".
