It’s been a long run for the SLA Pioneer crew. The history classroom where the class is held has seen many a new face for the journalism class. Many have come and gone over the years, and at last we have reached one thousand posts!
This year’s Pioneer crew has also had a long run. So, for this special article I decided to ask them how they feel about the class so far.
Ashley DaSilva stated that, “It’s a lot of work, but it can all be done in class. It’s really not all that hard…”
Danny Hammond said, “It’s a lot of writing, but it’s quiet and there’s not a ton of people, so it works.”
Cyan Picard, who has been in journalism for two years commented, “Miss Kate let’s me write about the Asian culture, which I obsess over, like, all the time.”
DeAnna Brown, who has also been in journalism for two years, simply shook her head. I interpreted this as, “Much work. Little time. STRESS.”
As for me, I really do enjoy this class. It was because of the journalism class that I learned about my love to write about what’s happening in the now, rather than just writing fictional stories (even though I really do love writing those). I sincerely do encourage others to join this class if they love to write and talk to people. It’s honestly not all that hard, and the conversation in class is always very interesting or at the very least entertaining.
So why not join the journalism crew for the 2016-2017 school year? I won’t be there, but I’m sure it’ll be great!
