Journalism is such a fun subject to teach, but many advisers come into the position without the skills needed to create publications with confidence.

Often coming from an English or Art background, it can be intimidating to realize everything that is in your new job description… graphic design, journalistic writing & editing, print production, photography, advertising sales, marketing, etc. 

We’ve been there & we are here to help.


We can help! Every tried to drink a sip of water from a firehouse? That's how advising publications can feel at the beginning. There are SO many great resources out there to help journalism advisers, but it can be pretty overwhelming.

Our interactive scope and sequence guide walks you through what to cover each week for Journalism 1, Yearbook, Newspaper, and Photojournalism. It includes links to lesson plans, activities, and assignments.

"In all my thirty plus years as a yearbook representative and educator, I have never seen anyone with such a natural God-given talent for teaching others as Katie Moreno. Not only does Katie have impeccable design, writing and photography skills, she is an expert at communicating concepts in a creative, thoughtful, and meaningful way to any audience. She never missed a deadline and intuitively knows how to project-manage any task, large or small, to a successful conclusion."
