Mark Murray


Michael Reeves has advised for 14 years and is currently teaching newspaper, journalism I, commercial photography, photojournalism, AV tech/broadcast, graphic design and illustration, advanced graphic design and illustration, printing and imaging tech I and II, and journalism independent study, all part of the career and technology education at James Bowie High School in Austin, TX.

Reeves believes that the control and decisions must be made by his students and they will gather strength from the events that the professionals press has endured in the past year. He writes, “The fourth estate is well and good in 2018 America. It has a black eye and a few bruises, but in the long run the escape from breaking news as fast as possible in an attempt to scoop the opposition going away and quality, sound, researched writing where the sourcing and depth is there will win the day. Another topic facing scholastic journalism is the advent of standards based grading and how to incorporate that into a journalism classroom. Again, I think that teachers will find ways to meet these new requirements. New grading expectations are common across the years and teachers always find a way to survive. I think all of the above are important and certainly impact scholastic journalism.”
