Judging as learning lesson

One of the goals of the high school journalism awards we're starting this year is to turn it into a learning lesson for Cerritos College journalism students. The plan all along has been to have the newspaper students do the judging of the high school entries. We got started on that today.

In addition to working together in teams to judge the best of the entries, the students are supposed to write comments on the entries so that we can return them to the high school programs with feedback. By judging others' work, my students learn more about having to evaluate their own work.

Here are some images from the judging, thanks to Tanya:
