The Current

Our Class

Black River high school students write, edit, and publish news and entertainment by, about, and for the Black River student body, as well as maintain The Current website. In the process, we learn the basic principles of online journalism and practice writing news stories, opinion articles, and entertaining features. Our goal is to investigate and report on issues important to the Black River middle and high school student community. 

This is a one semester G block elective class that can be taken multiple times; the first half of the first semester focuses on the role of the news media in American society, the principles of responsible reporting, and journalism ethics. Once the basics have been mastered, students can join the writing, editing, or graphics team and participate in the creation and maintenance of our website!
