Journalism is a medium that allows students and people from all around the world to learn more about their surroundings. The Multimedia Political Journalism class at Summit Denali expands this topic by illustrating the ideas and current news of political figures, stances and topics.

“I will be back for Advanced Multimedia Political Journalism because I enjoyed the first class, and I would like to pursue it more,” Denali freshman Mark Haiko said.

Advanced Multimedia Political Journalism will be a new course at Summit Denali for the 2019-20 school year. Interested students must have already passed Multimedia Political Journalism (the introductory course) or complete a teacher recommendation form with their independent study paperwork. Interested students should email the journalism adviser, Liz DeOrnellas, at edeornellas@summitps.org for more information.

“I would say that the work was a little bit harder for me because I don’t like to write, but it was very interesting and that helped me get through the class,” Denali sophomore Kyle Kobetsky said. “Going over topics and covering them was very interesting, but it was challenging.”
