MCES Messenger- New Student Written Newsletter

Justin Epley, sports and education reporter from the Morganton News Herald, came to meet with Mountain Crest Media Club members to share information about being a reporter.

Media Club members will begin doing interviews and writing news articles for this new, student published newspaper.  These student reporters will be interviewing teachers and students at Mountain Crest about school events, as well as about community members who come to future Media Club meetings to talk about their jobs, hobbies, or other interests.  To help our students get a better understanding of different aspects and opportunities around us, we hope by speaking with various community members, our students will become

interested in reading about topics mentioned during these talks.  This year, our media project, titled “The Library- Where Life and Literature Meet”, has put an emphasis on helping students make connections between books and real life.  


As part of this project, QR codes are being added to the inside cover of books that connect to websites and/or videos which can help students better understand the topics covered in non-fiction titles or can help students make connections between the events in fiction titles with events in real life.  In the 2016-2017 school year, we hope to add QR codes to books that will that link to various vocabulary activities as well, to help our young readers better understand important vocabulary words in the library books they are reading.  


Any community members interested joining us at upcoming Media Club meetings to share information about hobbies, jobs, or other interests please contact Christine Tew, media coordinator at Mountain Crest by email at csnow@burke.k12.nc.us.
