Like other writing courses, Journalistic Writing is dedicated to helping students improve their composition skills: clarity and economy, organization and style. In contrast, Journalistic Writing has a workshop format, and its main business is to produce real articles for a real audience. Students write stories for The Graphic, the award-winning school newspaper, which publishes approximately twice a trimester. Students learn the fundamentals of reporting and interviewing as well as news, editorial, and feature writing. In addition, students read extensively in regional and national newspapers, analyze the reporting of current events, and discuss the role of the media in society.
