ASNE Arizona Day 7

Today it was back to the books – back to work.  The real highlight of the day was our writing circles with our teams.  I enjoyed working with the teachers in my team and our mentor.  It was also very instructive to put ourselves in our student’s places during the critique session.  It was like having a band aid ripped off really fast.  But my team members were good with both positive and constructive criticism.  I know that I will be a better teacher for having gone through this experience.

We also talked about the challenges of recruiting and retaining students in journalism from ethnic communities.  This has been an on-going discussion throughout the institute.
