High school journalists share the same objectives as professional reporters--finding the story, writing the story, and packaging the story so that it appeals to an audience. Understanding how to best accomplish these objectives is key to the student on the newspaper, yearbook or Web site staff, but the fundamental art of storytelling and story presentation are not always at the center of high school journalism classes. Student journalists must first understand that storytelling, at its most basic level, is about people, and that understanding the audience is essential in deciding how to present the story. This handbook for high school journalists and teachers offers practical tips for all elements of school journalism. The author covers the essential components that students must understand: information gathering, writing, standard and alternative coverage and packaging. Students will find valuable information about identifying news, interviewing, research, narrative writing style, editing, visual presentation and layout. The book also covers the legal rights of student journalists, objective vs. opinion writing, staff planning and organization and Web-based journalism. Each chapter includes study guides for practical applications of the concepts discussed. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.
Throughout this textbook, you will find content that has been developed to cover many of the High School Standards for Mathematical Content and all of the Standards for Mathematical Practice from the Common Core State Standards.

From the back of the book: Rolling thunder! The highway can be a very dangerous place-especially when you're carrying a heavy cargo. The Hardys have gone undercover, determined to crack a truck hijacking scheme, but a ruthless gang of thugs are just as determined to run them off the road. The hijackers are spreading terror on the interstates, and whoever gets in their way could end up on a one-way dead-end street. Someone's going to eat asphalt, but Frank and Joe are prepared. They're gunning the engines and riding the roads on eighteen wheels of diesel-powered chrome and steel! ================ From inside the book: TRUCKIN' INTO TROUBLE Frank's right hand was anchored to the door handle of the eighteen-wheeler by the handcuffs, but he reached his left hand back, extending himself as far as possible. He missed the crank that connected the rig to the cab by a couple of feet. It was obvious that he couldn't possibly reach the handle that way. The truck hurtled around a sharp turn, and Frank's door flew wide open. For a moment he dangled just above the onrushing asphalt road. Grabbing frantically for the door frame with his left hand, he pulled himself back against the side of the cab. "I'll never get it this way," he gasped. "Hurry, Frank!" Pat screamed. "I can't keep us on the road much longer!"
