Journalism Resources

Students in Journalism Lab PHC
The classes have taught me
to develop rough ideas into comprehensive narratives,
to harness my curiosity productively,
and to be persistent and dedicated
to my work.
—Harvest Prude ('18)

Welcome to PHC's resources page for journalism teachers.

What you’re doing is important. Journalism is a profoundly noble calling, and you’re helping students accomplish God’s purposes in their lives and in our culture. Thank you for your service.

High school journalism teachers, especially Christian ones, often wonder where to find curricula that reflect their faith. Here are some resources we use here at Patrick Henry College.

I hope you find them helpful, but they’re just a start. If you have questions or even just need a little encouragement, please, send me a note or give me a call. I’d really like to help.

Few Christian news organizations offer reliable, original reporting; here are two.

I’m on staff at World, and Christianity Today is very reputable. Avoid Christian websites that merely rewrite stories published elsewhere.

  • Christianity Today
