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.
