“Journalism is, at its most fundamental level, about clear and compelling storytelling with the purpose of providing your reader a service. Whether you’re reporting on the lives of students in your school, localizing an international event to your community, investing in a long-term investigative piece, reviewing a movie or summarizing a sports match, you should be focused on keeping your audience’s interest and providing them with useful information. This information, if presented correctly, can have a substantial civic impact.” http://www.schooljournalism.org/
