Scholastic Journalism Week Recap

[/media-credit] Journalists assume the role and responsibility of reporting the news. As student journalists, we may be limited in the world of events but the spirit of The Feather sparks among the laptops in Room 624.

Journalists assume the role and responsibility of reporting the news. As student journalists, we may be limited in the world of events but the spirit of The Feather sparks among the laptops in Room 624. We seek the truth, we seek the news and foster community.

America’s Founding Fathers outlined the four fundamental rights of a human being in the Bill of Rights. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

Often in high school, class participation can easily turn into a joke, and an apathetic attitude gains popularity in the classroom.  It’s easy to slip into that routine as others around you do.

Journalism is a class, but that is as normal as it gets. From the minute you enter the lab the environment transforms into a work place. Publications adviser, Greg Stobbe, eyeballs you from his rolly chair asking, “What have you done for me today?” We are sharing stories applicable to students and staff at Fresno Christian, or those living across the world, sharing a part of our human condition and ways to relate.

Scholastic Journalism Week emphasizes the freedoms and rights afforded to the public by The First Amendment. Journalists use these freedoms each day to freely report the truth and express opinions. This video contains footage of all the activities The Feather staff was involved in to celebrate SJW and encourage the students to engage in the news.
