One fantastic benefit of attending the Flint Hills Publications Workshop is a one-year membership to the Journalism Education Association. You read that correctly. You will receive the membership benefit by simply attending our summer workshop. The benefit of JEA for advisers is immeasurable. Among some of the more notable advantages is access to nearly 200 weeks worth of curriculum across 11 content areas. Our track leaders are all active in JEA, carrying a Certified Journalism Educator tag with their positions.
The best part? The real-life JEA bookstore can be found in the basement level of Kedzie Hall. This is your chance to check out curriculum, posters, journalism books and goodies to bring back to your classroom for the 2020-2021 school year. All advisers who attend our camp get a basement trip to the JEA bookstore and a meeting with JEA Executive Director, Kelly Glasscock.
Most importantly, we have Nancy Smith, MJE from Lafayette High School (MO) leading the charge in the Adviser course. Smith is a nationally recognized MJE adviser who has been the recipient of the JEA’s highest honor, the Carl Towley Award, as well as being recognized as an H.L. Hall National Yearbook Adviser of the Year. The publications she advises have won numerous awards at the state and national levels.
Regardless if you’re a brand new journalism teacher, or a seasoned veteran looking to add new tools to your journalism game, we believe that you will leave camp with a boatload of fresh ideas for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year.
If you are looking to become a successful scholastic journalism educator, look no further. Attend our workshop and leave equipped with both the knowledge and tools to guide you through the next year of advising.
