The Journalism Winterim is exploring what Journalism and Media are, and what a Journalist does. Over the two weeks of Winterim, we will meet with journalists, photojournalists, and editors to ask questions and learn about their jobs. By the end of our class, the students will write, take photos, and edit a small CA newspaper.
Day 1 was spent brainstorming ideas for our publication and getting to know one another. Day 2 the group travelled to The Leaf Chronicle to speak with Editor, Chris Smith about the importance of the newspaper and the different aspects of journalism.
Journalism students met Jennifer Babich, an investigative journalist with The Leaf Chronicle, who also has experience in radio and TV. She spoke to us about her experiences and answered questions on various journalism topics.
