How to be a journalist

Every news story has a story. Go beyond the headlines with Libby Casey as she explains how journalists do their jobs. Dozens of short videos available.
Since the pandemic began more and more colleges have gone to first-person features. Their numbers are fewer this semester than last spring, but I’m beginning to see some in high school publications as well. Perhaps no publication has more first-person features than the UC Berkeley Daily Californian, and many of them deal with sexuality.  Most other first-person features focus on dealing with pandemic life.
Publications at all levels are covering athletic teams as they inch closer to returning to the field of competition. High schools seem to be heading back to the field earlier than colleges. Likewise with returns to the classroom.
And, as mentioned last week, high schools and community colleges, in particular, are doing more and more stories about how school activities –from back to school nights, to clubs, to support services– are making Zoom transformations.
