Broadcast Journalism

Grades:  9-12
Credit: 0.5 per semester
Prerequisite:  Complete application and teacher approval

Students in the Broadcast Journalism course experience hands-on learning as they run two different news shows weekly and biweekly. They gain skills in video shooting and editing, interviewing, writing scripts, anchoring, reporting, producing, public speaking, leadership, and advertising. The class mimics a newsroom in the real world with student leadership running news meetings and editors using Final Cut Pro, software that is used by film professionals, and green screen technology. Students also attend field trips to news rooms in the Twin Cities. They also have the opportunity to attend and compete in the National Journalism Education Association Conference.
