School Newspapers Online to partner with the Poynter Institute

We’re thrilled to announce that we have partnered with the Poynter Institute to provide websites for their upcoming workshop, Taking High School Media Online. Each of the participating advisers will receive a website built on our Gazette template. Over two intense days, participants will experience the hands-on training that is Poynter’s trademark, and they will leave with a School Newspapers Online site to use with their students free of charge for 6 months.

The workshop will be led by Jim Streisel, MJE, adviser of print and online publications at Carmel (Ind.) High School, and Poynter faculty member Wendy Wallace. Streisel is the author of High School Journalism: A Practical Guide.
