Journalism Club

Journalism/Creative Writing Club – Thursdays from 10/29/20 until 5/13/21

Bitmoji ImageSponsor - Mr. Smiley

Students will be designing journalism projects using the following programs:

WeVideo – all year

This is a video creation tool that will allow students to collaborate on projects across multiple platforms and devices. Students can make videos, recordings, GIF’s, podcasts, and memes. This program will permit students to make authentic creations, empower their voices, and allow for deeper learning of their world.  It is compatible with Google Classroom. This is free to use.

OpenShot Video Editor – all year

This is a FREE, cross platform video editing software app that allows students to trim their videos, add animations, layers, video effects, and sound!  They can also use it to do slow motion and time manipulation.

Google Sites, Docs & Slides – all year

We will use these products to collaborate on stories that are currently making news, as well as past events that have shaped this country and the world.

We will use Google Sites to design a website for posting our creations as well as posting them on the Coolidge web page.
