I created this website to offer support to other Los Angeles Unified School District teachers advising any publications (newspapers, online websites, yearbooks) or teaching photography, broadcast or video production courses.
The first two years I was a high school newspaper adviser, I felt isolated and wasn’t aware of many of the resources (many of them free) and organizations out there supporting scholastic journalism. I don’t think I grew as an adviser until my third year when I found others who helped guide me and shared their ideas and expertise with me.
I plan to post tips or lessons, upcoming events and links to articles revolving the world of high school journalism. I’d also like to make this site interactive and have other advisers share what works for them and their students.
Whether it’s your first time advising or your fifth year, I hope you find this site useful.
