This course will focus on building students' digital literacy skills through the use of a school newspaper. Throughout the course, students will learn how to craft their writing to fit the journalistic style employed in newspaper writing. Students will be working with Wordpress to create and maintain an online news site that will serve to cover the Minersville school community. Students will be working closely with their classmates and teacher, but will be graded on an individual basis. Such things as grammar, punctuation, and style will be graded of course; but students will also be graded on less formal things like hitting deadlines, uploading content, and interviewing people.
