I’m beginning the second week of an intensive journalistic experience. I am completing a four week + internship with the Hunterdon County Democrat provided through the New Jersey Press Foundation, and I am enrolled in an online course entitled Boot Camp for Scholastic Journalism Advisers offered through NewsU which is a project of the Poynter Institute for Media Studies.
Week one was a lot of work, but I am learning a lot, and most exciting of all, I am gathering material and sources that I can bring to my journalism students and newspaper staff. I hope to use this blog as a document of my experiences and as a place to reflect on what I have learned. Look for regular posting for the next few weeks as I attempt to grow as a reporter, writer, and teacher. Please feel free to add your comments and experiences to the mix.
