Adviser Update - summer 2012 edition

Summer 2012 edition

Adviser Update is interested in having photos of media staffs that attend next week’s Journalism Education Association/National Scholastic Press Association convention in San Antonio.

Adviser Update editor George Taylor asks that  you send a high resolution image and caption information by Dec. 1, and he’ll consider it for publication in the winter issue of Adviser Update.

Mentors, be sure to tell your mentees who are attending the convention to take a group photo or a candid of the students in action at the convention.

Send the photos to: gtay200 (at) verizon (dot) net

Norma Kneese Diversity columnAdviser Update is produced by the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund and is available free to advisers. The publication includes useful news and features for advisers along with profiles for media professionals and leaders in scholastic journalism. Some issues, such as the Summer 2012 issue that’s highlighted in this post, include “These Struck Our Fancy,” a special pullout section of samples of writing, photography and design.

JEA Mentoring Committee member Norma Kneese writes a regular column, “Diversity,” for Adviser Update. Kneese is chair of the JEA Multicultural Commission.

You can download issues of Adviser Update at the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund website.

We hope to see photos of JEA mentees — or “graduated mentees — and their staffs in the Winter Issue of Adviser Update.
