New Product Review: Shmoop University’s Journalism for Texas Proclamation 2020

Are you looking for journalism materials for your adoption? Take a look at Learning List’s reviews of Shmoop Journalism.

Shmoop University’s Journalism is intended for the high school Journalism course.  This fully digital program encourages students to engage with the material independently. Students can work at their own pace and complete the material in any order. Shmoop’s goal is to “provide fun, rigorous, materials that engage and challenge.”

The course helps students understand the basic tenets of journalism, from its purpose to specifics, such as feature writing and investigation. The material references high profile media stories as examples of journalism concepts. Learning List’s reviewers observed that lessons are written in a joking, conversational tone that sometimes is more distracting than engaging.

Adaptions for students with specific learning needs are limited, as all students generally complete the same assignments. Read Learning List’s editorial review to learn more about the overall instructional experience and quality of the material.
