Journalism Education Seminar Seeks Philadelphia Teachers
PHILADELPHIA --The Sixth Outreach Academy of Journalism Education Association at Philadelphia this fall is taking a bold step devoted to training Philadelphia-area teachers in advising and starting school newspapers, yearbooks, broadcast and online media.
The goal is to train 30 teachers in the City of Brotherly Love on Nov. 7 and 8 before the fall Journalism Education Association/National Scholastic Press Association convention revs up. Philadelphians will attend on the first day and teachers from farther away on the second. The academy is a free, intensive seminar for publications advisers who have five years or fewer advising experience and/or teach in schools traditionally underrepresented in JEA membership, especially low-income, urban and rural schools and those with high minority populations.
To request an application, call Linda at (856) 889-7152, send her an e-mail or write to Sixth JEA Outreach Academy-Philadelphia, c/o Linda Shockley, P.O. Box 1273, Voorhees NJ 08043-1273.
Application forms can be downloaded from the JEA Web site, JEA web site, or the Pennsylvania School Press Association’s site.
The deadline is Oct. 8.
