On Wednesday morning three cycle-three classes at Lennoxville Elementary School tried their hands at community journalism. Following a virtual tour of The Record, and a rundown of what goes into putting the paper together each day, students drawing on their real-life experiences of a snow day on Tuesday to explore what is involved in sharing key information in a way that will both inform and engage readers. While thinking about the who, what, when, where, and why questions that readers need answered, groups of young writers were also challenged to come up with an eye-catching headline.
The Record has prepared workshops covering topics ranging from interview skills and hard news to writing editorials and features or even designing ads and layout. Teachers or schools interested in participating are welcome to reach out by emailing
Students are also encouraged to participate in The Record’s weekly news quiz. At the end of the month, any students who participate and answer the questions about what was in the paper will be entered into a draw to win a 16-GB Fire tablet.
