East Rock Record Journalism Program
On Wednesday afternoons, students in grades 3 through 8 at East Rock School meet to work on their school newspaper as part of the New Haven Student Journalism Project. The project helps students learn about the craft and power of journalism by producing a real newspaper, which gets distributed to students and families at the school and throughout the city of New Haven. With the support of Yale undergraduate and high school mentors, students investigate and report on some of the most important stories of the day. Reporters have written about gun violence, the economy, school uniform policies, a proposed sugar tax, the use of social media in schools, and cyber crime. For each issue, student reporters hold “press conferences” with prominent New Haven figures, including Mayor Toni Harp and FBI Special Agent in Charge Patricia Ferrick.
