Course Information

We are excited to have new students join us as we produce the website (The Lancer Feed), print magazine (Image), videos, social media (@thelancerfeed) and yearbook (Legend).  Being part of the journalism program is awesome. The prerequisite courses will prepare you for work on any of the publications staffs. Our classes are very different from traditional classes. Student editors are responsible for the staffs and their work. You will have a variety of opportunities and choices to work in areas and on projects that interest you specifically. Students on the staffs also get the chance to travel across the country to national journalism conventions each year. Also, working on a high school publication looks fantastic on college applications and resumes.

Specifically, we are looking for students who like having a choice and a voice in what they do, are proud of having an impact and making a difference and who like moving forward, becoming smarter, better, and more accomplished. If these attributes describe you, then you’d be great for our team.

To get involved, all you need to do is register for the appropriate classes when you make your schedule for next year. There are two prerequisite courses: Writing and Reporting and/or Visual Journalism. Take either of those first semester and then sign up for either the News Production, Yearbook Production or Digital Media Production second semester.

Writing and Reporting is a language arts elective credit and Visual Journalism, Digital Media Production, News Production and Yearbook Production are CTE credits. Usually students who are interested in the News Production class take Writing and Reporting and students who are interested in yearbook take Visual Journalism, but either course is an acceptable prerequisite to either publications course.

If you want more details, come to Room 137A  during any Flex time or email the adviser at smithnancy@rsdmo.org.

And, if you think you have what it takes to come directly onto one of the staffs without the prerequisite class, see Mrs. Smith to see how to get a waiver and join staff right away!
