Passionate at Heart
The salient point that stands out for me today is when Christopher Callahan spoke on the need to inspire our students and to help them develop a passion for journalism. I'd concur and say this is at the heart of what we do.
His suggestion that we recruit students from our social studies classes also hit home to me. Next year I will hone in on the social studies teachers for recommendations and not let my concern for needing students who have reasonable writing skills to get in the way of the passion that might be hidden elsewhere.
Another very intense, full, and productive day. The Thursday stretch is exhibited on the faces of the teachers above.
