Teachers learn a ton at conferences. Kids can too.

This past Monday I had the opportunity to attend the Michigan Interscholastic Press Association conference in Lansing with thirty-five Hamilton High School journalism students and their teachers Mark Behnke and Kevin Weed.

Not only did I pick up some great ideas for assessing my own students' work and supporting scholastic journalism efforts, I also realized that students enjoy learning in the conference format as well.

Students from the school's newspaper "The Thunderhawk" and sports media class "Covering Hawkeyes Sports" share their reflections on getting out of the building for a day and engaging in some self-directed learning.
