Notes from the Classroom is a publication created by Miguel Paz to share notes, tips, behind the scenes, how to´s and other things written by the students in my Journalism courses (and from others too) at the Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY. Writing about what we do, how and why -and doing it in public- serves us and our community to engage in journalism as a civic form of conversation and debate with others. It contributes to the professional values of our reporters/students/alumni. We can learn from them and celebrate them. It also gives them a bit of exposure for career advancement and it contributes to show the world all the awesomeness that happens in our School.
