HIGH SCHOOL JOURNALISM
By Homer L. Hall. The author—an award-winning journalism teacher for over 35 years—offers a basic text for high school journalism. While focusing on the student newspaper, yearbooks, and broadcasting, the author emphasizes good writing in any medium. With abundant illustrations, copy samples, and skill-building exercises, the many chapters cover the history of journalism in America, types of writing, editing and style, rights and responsibilities of journalists, publication design, advertising, photography, careers, and broadcast journalism. An extensive student workbook contains coordinated activities. The 133-page teacher’s guide (free with order of 20 or more student texts) has teaching plans, chapter objectives, and answer keys for the workbook exercises. Glossary. Bibliography. Index.
