EWA’s Resources for Reporters Have You Covered

I wanted to take a moment to remind you that EWA’s website – Ed Media Commons – is open to the public. You still need to be an EWA member in order to take part in online discussions, but visitors are welcome. I encourage you drop by, take a look around, and consider joining EWA.

Also for education reporters, EWA has a wealth of resources to help you get up to speed on the hot topics, refresh your skills, and even add some new ones to your toolbox. Our series of Reporter Guides tackling topics interviewing children, making the most of your campus visits, and reading a district’s budget.

If you’re looking for ideas on deadline, head for EWA’s Story Starters website. You’ll find background information on topics ranging from classroom technology to school safety, in addition to suggested sources, related organizations, and recent research. We also have the brand-new Glossary of Education Reform for Journalists, which will help you with everything from accelerated learning to whole-school transformation.
