D.C. Monuments & Institutions Journalism Camp
June 18 – July 20, 2018
For grade 5-8 at Link education in Hyattsville…
Journalism camp with a focus on storytelling, persuasive journalism, and visual presentations.
The pictures above were taken during a summer abroad course, “American Politics and Culture” taught in partnership with SAIS-John Hopkins. The instructor pictured, Geneen Massey, has 17 years of teaching experience with a focus on journalism, reading, and English for speakers of other languages. Geneen earned an M.A.T. from World Learning, School for International Training in 2011.
With fun and learning in mind, students will use multiple modalities to share what is seen, heard, felt and learned during visits to the Newseum, National Museum of the American Indian and the National Zoo. Students will use oral storytelling, persuasive journalism, and short videos or slide presentations to share what they’ve learned with parents and community members at the conclusion of camp (students will need to bring a phone to class to facilitate recording during field trips).
