Course Description:
Scholastic Newspaper Production is a basic guide to the creation, production and distribution of the scholastic newspaper. It breaks the course down into pre-production, production and post-production activities, and includes a variety of production schedules, ranging from bi-weekly to quarterly. The newspaper/newsmagazine staff will be able to adapt one of the production schedules to their needs. Activities to reinforce knowledge and skills in journalism history, law and ethics, copyediting, layout and design and leadership skills are included. Training materials for new staffers are included, and are flexible enough to be used at any time of the year. The course will take student staffers through the basics in pre-production, including staff organization, job descriptions, work-flow routines and practice exercises; into the actual production of each issue from start to finish; then into post-production activities, including staff and professional critiquing and the keeping of a professional portfolio by all staff members. Information and ideas on fund raising, advertising sales and subscription sales are also included. Advisers will also receive an extensive list of resources, including publications, listservs, web sites, organizations, evaluation services and workshops.

Testimonial:
Having edited my first newspaper in 1953, worked on my own high school newspaper since 1957 and advised a high school paper since 1964, I know what is involved. I worked in the start from a personal vision (stil do) and enormous ambition and chewed by way through every source of help available. Nothing of this scope was available. Any beginner today would have a tremendous advantage with this feast spread before him or her to work from. Everything is presented clearly, at a down-to-earth level and with a realistic view of what can and cannot be achieved depending on local circumstances. This is the book many new advisers doubtlessly have hoped and prayed for. It is hefty but almost anything any newcomer would wonder about is here. It is crisp and current. I would have liked more illustrations of pages from top-rated publications, particularly those which wander successfully from the beaten track. I can’t think of a book like this, or one so logically organized and presented. —
