This course explores several facets of Broadcast Journalism, including identifying and analyzing newsworthy events, writing TV-news storyboards and scripts, conducting dynamic news interviews, and learning the job responsibilities of a news reporter and anchor-person. To connect classroom learning with real world broadcasting, students will tour WRGB CBS 6, a local Albany, NY TV-news station, and have the opportunity to talk with a CBS 6 news anchor. Throughout the semester, students will produce three major video projects. By working independently and in small “news team” groups, students will expand their knowledge of the Broadcast Journalism profession; develop their collaboration, interpersonal, leadership, and organizational skills; and strengthen their English Language Arts (ELA) related skills, specifically reading, writing, and public speaking.
