Journalism 101

Students in front of a map.

Students were asked to point out where they lived on a map as part of an exercise during the Urban Journalism Workshop, Saturday, March 10.

The first lesson for our fledgling reporters? “Get a map,” according to veteran journalist and author Reginald Stewart. Stewart led student correspondents through a Journalism 101 session Saturday, March 10, at National Public Radio. Participants were asked to point out where they lived since, according to Stewart, knowing where you are leads to a better understanding of the nature of your surroundings, which leads to better reporting skills. Try finding that on a GPS.
