Crime Report Lab

Ok, I'll admit it, I think I may have caught the journalism bug. Eek! Now what do I do? Does talent come included with this bug or do I actually have to (gulp) work at it? As much as I enjoyed Friday's lab, I really don't think I'm brave enough or quick enough to actually make it as a reporter.

It was so thrilling to takes notes and ask questions and "interview" bystanders. I guess maybe it's my overactive imagination, but it seemed so real to me. Even the fear of the deadline was fun. I don't know, though. As much as I liked (ok, loved) the lab, I doubt I'll ever seriously persue journalism. I think teaching is my true calling. But, I think I've found a way to incorporate both . I'm currently designing a test run journalism lesson plan. I've learned a lot in news writing so far, so I'm thinking my students may also enjoy the "not quite English" aspect of journalism. If I can sneak a little journalism into the classes that I'm teaching, I'd be able to satisfy my news bug and still continue doing what I love best.
