We teachers often rely on our editors to learn all of the technical steps to design, which often makes our jobs seem easier. The advanced Indesign session was very informative in showing quick steps to set styles for consistency in page design.

These elements are important parts of the design as well, and we should all work to improve that consistency in our publications.
Thirty-four high school journalism educators from around the country traveled to Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in June 2010 for the ASNE Reynolds High School Journalism Institute. This blog carries their thoughts and information about the program.
The institute, one of five held around the country, is made possible by a grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation administered by the American Society of News Editors.
