Project Title: Journaling Jenkins! (an online news and literary journal)
Learning Innovation Grant Recipient
Journalism students (and student volunteer contributors) will publish an online news and literary journal to post articles about their own school and local community. The online journal will include book and media reviews, editorials, fiction, poetry and essays. Digital writing will also be enhanced through technology by including formatting features, photographs and video clips. These writing assignments feature “real-world” applications of narrative, informative, and argumentative writing. Students will also develop collaborative and leadership skills as they work together and fulfill individual responsibilities on the journal staff. Additionally, the online journal will serve as an important public relations tool to communicate with parents and the community.
