Wondering if the $65 additional registration fee for the Journalism Education Association is worth the cost?
One of the benefits of membership (in addition to reduced rate on books through the JEA Bookstore as well as access to the JEA-HELP Listserve) is access to an ever-changing online curriculum tied to both the Common Core as well as 21st Century Skills.
A sneak peak at the curriculum is available at this link.
Each lesson includes not only a description, CC Standards, but also Powerpoints, handouts, quizzes as well as a script that is perfect for new advisers and a nice reminder for those with experience.
Lessons range from writing and editing to photography as well as design and leadership. Curriculum leaders work year-round on expanding the offerings and posting new lessons. A new lesson on design was released just this past week.
