Few things are changing faster than journalism these days. All of us who work with student media have the obligation to keep up with those changes while remaining grounded in the fundamentals of accurate and fair nonfiction storytelling.

Each day on our Twitter feed we strive to post the latest tips and advice relevant to you and your students. We’ve also compiled — and continue to expand — one of the largest galleries of student publications in the country so that you can see what other Illinois high school journalism programs are doing.

For that and more, we invite you to visit the sections below to learn from and stay in touch with your peers.
