Going to the office of the Palisadian-Post was so exciting and fun. The editor-in-chief showed us a preview of the next edition of the paper. Everyone there was really nice and helped us out with our own classroom newspaper. The staff gave us many tips and pointers, such as adding more pictures, using certain research sites for certain topics and the elements of storytelling in an article.
“I think that it was really cool to see what they did to make a newspaper. I was watching the man who was formatting the newspaper, and it was extremely interesting. I wonder what app they used to make it,” Charlie said.
We really enjoyed learning how to layout a newspaper so it is more organized. We also thought it was fun to look around the office and meet the newspaper staff.
“I learned that it takes a lot of people to build a newspaper,” Ben said.
We asked a lot of questions about the articles in the Palisadian-Post, especially the 2 Cents column, where people from the community can write in and talk about other people anonymously around town. Overall, we had a great time, got a lot of help and loved our trip.
