On Nov. 9 2007, one year ago today, after founding and leading a student newspaper at the Franklin Learning Center for a school year and a half, I was asked to present and take part in a panel discussion on youth journalism at the Journalism Education Association conference held at the Marriot in Center City, Philadelphia Nov. 8-11.
The panel was called “Building Journalism Programs Outside the Curriculum.” See the program here [PDF].
Among others, I was proud to speak alongside Pulitzer-Prize winner Acel Moore, among the journalists I most respect, and Philadelphia Inquirer photographer Mike Levin.
I mostly focused on the challenges I faced, contrasted with the effect it had on the small stable of loyal participants I found.
