Now is the time to apply for ASNE’s Reynolds High School Journalism Institute. The deadline is March 1.

The two-week intensive workshop provides hands-on training for journalism teachers, including guest speakers and field trips and developing lesson plans. The Reynolds High School Journalism Institute is held at four different locations:

  • June 15-27, 2014       Arizona State University, Phoenix, Arizona
  • July 6-18, 2014          Kent State University, Kent, Ohio
  • July 13-25, 2014        University of Missouri, Columbia, Missouri
  • July 13-25, 2014        University for Texas at Austin, Austin, Texas

Information about the program and the online application form are available online.

Mentees in the JEA Mentoring Program have attended the Institutes and have found the experience to be very helpful in terms of developing journalism skills and teaching competencies and in expanding their network of professional contacts.

Since 2000, the Institutes have trained more than 1,900 teachers. The Institutes are free, with funding provided by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.
