As we ‘go to press’ with the second edition of the Patriot Power, I have to say I’m so impressed by how much our Digital Journalism students have learned in a really short period of time. This month, they found their voice, discovered interesting angles, and boldly told their story for the whole world to hear. I love empowering them to grow and figuring out how to get out of their way.

We hope you enjoy reading the variety of articles our students wrote this winter. Many of them chose to work with a partner on this issue, which allowed them to leverage their strengths and stretch their wings. They even learned how to proof and edit their own writing this week using the Read and Write extension on their Chromebooks and the eagle eyes of their classmates.

Be sure to leave our reporters feedback under the Comments section of each article. They take great pride in reading what you have to say. We look forward to sharing the human interest stories our students are beginning to write for the next issue of our Patriot Power. Stay tuned…
