This class is run like a small business. The editors are in charge of overseeing the production of each issue of the newspaper. They produce a 16 page issue every 3 weeks and submit new material for the online edition every single day. Please feel free to check out their work on spartanoracle.blogspot.com
Students are encouraged to also work on photos, stories, graphics, or comics on their own and "pitch"the idea to the section editors. Again, this is ust like they might have to do later in life in their chosen profession.
Some of the skills they will master in this class are time management, confidence In talking to strangers, selling their ideas, and taking pride in their work. Student sneed to keep track of any awards that the newspaper wins over the course of the year as they will want to list those on their college applications and/or scholarship applications.
My job, you may ask, as adviser is what? I like to think of myself as the publisher of the paper.I make sure that the ads staff has sold enough ads to publish the paper,to check pages for acceptable content, to monitor the sections, and to keep the equipment, and personnel running as smoothly as possible.I am here to help the students become all that they can dream to become.
