JOURNALISM TRIPS: Texas Association of Journalism Educators- San Antonio Oct. 19-Oct. 21. Pick up the info on the drafting table in front of the room.
This is a workshop that gives students a chance to meet with other journalism students from around the state and immerse themselves in design, writing, photography, editing, magazines, newspapers, yearbooks and everything else that might be in scholastic journalism. This is a great opportunity for students to explore all of the different areas in this field, and to become better at their chosen craft.

The Oracle is online. We are updating it daily and will be posting the daily announcements on here as well. Check us out at http://shsoracle.com/
Everyone on staff has a job to do and everyone is encouraged to pitch their ideas on a regular basis. There is a regular print edition that needs to be "fed", as well as the online Oracle, the Twitter account, the Instagram account and the mobile app. Again, students are held back only by whatever restrictions they place upon themselves. If you know of a webdesigner, graphic artists, professional photographer, public relations person, or anyone else in the field that could come speak to the class please let me know. I want to have these students as prepared as possible, aware of all of the possibilites out there, and ready to take on the world. Thanks again for sharing your child with me.
Photojournalism: Students need to bring a camera every day to class. If they wish, they may bring the camera in and I will lock it up in the cage. The students in this class represent another set of eyes and ears that we did not have on staff and will be repeatedly reminded to shoot everything possible. We need, want pictures of every student in this building, and every student doing things outside of this building. My hope for every single student in this class is that they get to experience the joy of seeing their name in print in the form of a photo credit ASAP. Students are held back only by whatever restrictions they place upon themselves.
Journalism I: Starting with history of journalism and ending with newspaper and yearbook design this class will cover every aspect of journalism. This is the class where most of the future editors come from and where the students get to explore every facet of the field. Writers, graphic designers, photographers, computer people, ad salesmen, and online afficienados find their niche in here.
