RESTON, Va., Feb. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — As part of its national effort to help teens develop and embrace 21st century literacy skills, my.hsj.org and hsj.org seek high school teachers for an expenses-paid, two-week summer institute.
One hundred and seventy-five teachers will be selected to attend the 2011 Reynolds High School Journalism Institute. The deadline for applications is March 1.
There is no cost to the teacher or high school. Students, especially those who take part in journalism classes or clubs are the ultimate beneficiaries, emerging as stronger readers, writers, critical thinkers and communicators. Teachers from high schools that lack online student media or have struggling journalism programs are especially encouraged to apply.
Transportation, lodging, meals, materials, tuition and continuing education credits are covered by a grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.
The Institute will take place at five accredited journalism schools:
- Arizona State University, Phoenix
- University of Texas at Austin
- Kent State University, Ohio
- University of Nevada, Reno
- University of Missouri, Columbia
