Students Become Published Journalists

1

Creativity and outstanding writing talents have allowed fourth-grade students in Patricia Alberti’s class at Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School to become published authors in an upcoming edition of Newsday’s Kidsday. 

For the past several weeks the students have been working with editor Pat Mullooly to draft feature articles, surveys, and puzzles, in collaboration and independently. In addition to their work in the classroom, four students were invited to The Paramount theater in Huntington to interview “America’s Got Talent” sensation We Three.

“The students prepared well-researched questions, as all good journalists do,” Ms. Alberti said. “They were treated to free seats at the concert that night!”

The class’ completed works will be published in Newsday from July 13-19.
