A Special Message from Stan Zoller (JEA)

As you know, teaching journalism can be a real challenge. It can be hard for any journalism educator, but especially those who are new or in districts what may be resource-challenged.

That’s one of the reasons the JEA offers a one-day workshop at each convention for new advisers who are minorities, teach in minority-majority schools, or in an under-served district.

The Outreach Academy gives participants a “boot camp” (introduction and resources) to journalism education.  The workshop is led by Anthony Whitten, Scholastic Journalism Outreach Coordinator at the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication.

The Outreach Academy in Indianapolis will be from 8:30-4:30 on Thursday, Nov. 10.

Information about the Outreach Academy is available HERE. Applicants need to make sure to select the Indy Outreach Academy on the pull-down menu HERE.

If you, or any adviser interested in the program, have any questions, just contact me at [email protected].
