Journalism I Lesson — Friday, April 14, 2017

Instructions: Read the two articles on student journalists at a Kansas high school who broke a story about their principal’s qualifications. You can also listen to the three-minute Skype interview on the Washington Post article if you have ear buds. When finished, respond to the following question by leaving a comment with your name in the Comments section to the left on my website:

Critique the actions and decisions of these student journalists. What did they do well? Did they do anything wrong? Should journalism students publish these kinds of stories?
