Budding Journalists

The world of journalism was at the fingertips of Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School fourth-graders in Patricia Alberti as they put lessons into practice and became journalists for Newsday’s Kidsday.

Working under the guidance of a Newsday editor, the students created jokes, puzzles, surveys and articles on a wide array of topics. In the coming weeks, they will have the chance to conduct an interview with a soon-to-be named celebrity. The venture has enabled the class to strengthen not only their writing skills but also their research and photography abilities.

The completed entries will be published in Newsday in late September/early October 2015.
