Third  in a series….

Schools participating in the Midwest Journalism Education Initiative’s Collaborative Coverage project funded by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation have published special reports about the “Great Expectations” facing teens today.McCormick Foundation logo copy

The topic, jointly agreed upon by participating students and advisers, looks at a variety of issues from Expectations on Social Media, to dealing with the expectations of grades.

Today’s featured coverage is an in-depth look at the need to meet “Great Expectations” because of student schedules and to meet the goals of the school.  This report is  by student journalists of  The Spokesman, at Wheeling High School.  It can be found at:  Wheeling Spokesman

Visit us soon for more examples of work done by student journalists involved with this project.
