Backpack Journalism In The Morning!
WOW! Where did the time go? It seems like yesterday I was in the beginning stages of planning this year’s Summer Backpack Journalism Academy. In less than twelve hours I will be setting up MCM’s classroom for our newest journalists! I feel like a kid the night before school starts and I think I may be more excited than our students. A little enthusiasm is always a good thing. I can’t wait to see what ideas they bring to the table tomorrow when we start to brainstorm story ideas. Teenagers are full of interesting ideas, so I may be learning a little from them too! Make sure you check in tomorrow to see how the first day went. I am sure that the day will be an eventful one! Remember, there is still time to get in on the “Backpack” action by signing up for one of the two sessions offered in July.
