What do a group of students from Emerson decide to do amid finals? A musical act, of course. This is one reason why I LOVE Emerson. Emerson students are innately creative, upbeat, and full of life. I see several of my former students in this video: Renée Deschene, Courtney Tharp, Xandra Fileccia, Jackie Pauley, Mary Quigley and Beth Treffeisen. Great job, guys. One day I hope to teach at the castle!
Below are highlights of the work done by students who participated in the American Indian Journalism Institute in June. We worked long hours for 10 straight days, but it was fun. It was amazing to watch how quickly these energetic budding journalists took to creating video packages.
AIJI has been helping young people realize their dream of becoming journalists since 2001. The program offers a mix of theoretical and practical workshops, as well as real-world experience in newsrooms. It is underwritten by the Freedom Forum Diversity Institute.
