FSI NEWS of the Week: Our Journalism Class publishes the first edition of THE INNOVATION TIMES!
In just a few short weeks, our Journalism students have investigated many types of journalism, including podcasts, digital photography, film, print, and radio. They’ve focused on AUDIENCE and PURPOSE, and how these important factors determine the format and medium for sharing news. Tasked with designing and implementing a student-managed system of sharing FSI news, students decided to create a printed newspaper with the purpose of showcasing the exciting learning experiences taking place every day here ath The Franklin School of Innovation.
According to Katie Washburn, FSI’s awesome 9th-10th grade ELA and Journalism teacher,
“they noticed that there were lots of awesome things happening across campus, and no central place to get all of that information. They decided that they wanted the school newspaper to be that place. Therefore, the features are centered around what’s happening inside and around the FSI community – sports updates, student government, shout-out’s to awesome students, community features, and opinion/ advice columns on subjects that matter to FSI students. They also want the paper to be educational, with each edition illuminating important ideas or events outside of the FSI community. This edition will be released on September 11th, so our cover page will feature a memorial to 9/11.”
