This year we're going to try something a little different and use this blog for our journalism class. This should have quite a few advantages, but I'll point out the ones that come to my mind first.
*Interactive: You will be able to give feedback on current stories and give suggestions for future stories.
*Current: News is best when it is just that, new. By allowing the individual class members "publish" as soon as their done with their article, stories should be much fresher, so you won't be reading about a game that happened two weeks ago, read a movie review for a film that is already out of theaters, or missing an important meetings/fundraisers because they're already finished.
*Green: Blogs don't use any paper to read, so we'll be saving some trees this year.
*Audience: Our blog will be accessible to anyone who is interested in Goodhue School, whether that be alumni, student relatives, Goodhue citizens, etc.
*Multimedia: Blogs allow us to use more than just words. We Should have some good color pictures, and perhaps even some video and soundbites as well.
Like I said, there are plenty of other good reasons, but that's the tip of the iceberg at least. Hopefully we'll have a blog you'll want to check on regularly.
