Welcome to the ODE to Journalism website! First off, I would like to thank you for visiting us on our launch date. We have been working hard since the start of the school year to prepare for the launch of our site. It takes a lot of work from the team to get this many articles up every week and to keep the site up and running so we appreciate you taking the time to read the articles we publish. Speaking of which, what do we publish? As you might have guessed from the name of the website, we are a journalism site. Journalism is much more than just news, It is the art of documenting, researching, and bringing forth the truth. This is ODE’s first ever journalism class and we wanted to make sure that we embodied the spirit of journalism. This means putting out well written articles with accurate information in order to give you the best reading experience possible.
At the beginning of the year, Mrs. Ginter told us that she didn’t want the class to have a teacher-student dynamic. No, she wanted it to be more like staff working at a publishing firm and that is certainly what has happened. Since the beginning of the year the class truly has taken on a life of its own with the students taking control of the class and transforming it into something unique. We hope you will continue to visit our site and read our articles, supporting our work and the next generation of hardworking journalists.
This was a very ambitious effort on the part of everyone involved in the class and none of this would have been possible without the talented team of authors and editors that make up the ODE to Journalism staff.

“Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to be always part of unanimity.”
