2. Providing opportunities for students
Help us identify high school students with fierce curiosity, persistence and a drive to tell stories. We also work with visual artists and can help your students develop photography, video and illustration skills. ThreeSixty’s after-school and summer programs could help them develop their talents and find a career they love. Contact editor Thomas Rozwadowski, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have a student you’d like to get involved.
3. Connecting you with resources
From finding journalist volunteers to teacher training, ThreeSixty can help.
4. Publishing your students’ work
Submit student photos, articles and essays that you think might be appropriate for the ThreeSixty website. If the work is accepted, we’ll give your students credit, a small stipend and a link to your school’s website. And don’t forget our monthly YourTurn writing or photography contest. It’s a great class assignment.
5. Doing classroom visits
Want a short, interactive presentation on journalism, coming up with great story ideas, interviewing skills, the First Amendment, or writing a knock-out essay? A member of ThreeSixty’s staff or one of our journalist volunteers will come to your classroom. More extensive training is available for a modest fee.
