    From the beginning of the school year Journalism class is split with the yearbook class in which both work together on certain things to help each other in class. It is set to increase the leave of information from the school and capture all the things happening each week. Journalism is split into two an example is there is a Trojan Times and a weekly john. Trojan Times is based on an online website that you can see everywhere and get information about all the events happening. Trojan times is more of the part of journalism that requires more of an editorial style and more in-depth which leads to the final assignment made out to have a word count of 250. The weekly john is more easy-going; it requires at least a paragraph which will be printed onto a paper hung around school. The paper had at least 6 or fewer articles on it and was hung in the bathroom to show the importance of the week as well as the Trojan times. And for the people hanging up the weekly John. The journalism class came up with a way to split it up. Each student has a draw of who will be putting it up each week. Two girls are chosen and then two boys, so they can be quicker and make things easier. In an interview a student in journalism class named Daria shared a couple of words, she said ¨Some things I like about journalism are that it lets us be creative and choose what we want to write about either sports from school or outside school, art like paintings poems, games, and other kinds of stuff as long as it is school appropriate then you would be fine to write about anything. It gives us the freedom to think outside the box and lets us show who we are by writing about what we like.¨ It shows how the journalism class is and how it gives a free creative sense to the students.
