Description-

  • A journalistic look at the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and the fight for gun control—as told by the student reporters for the school's newspaper and TV station.
    This timely and media-driven approach to the Parkland shooting, as reported by teens in the journalism and broadcasting programs and in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas newspaper, is an inside look at that tragic day and the events that followed that only they could tell.
    It showcases how the teens have become media savvy and the skills they have learned and honed—harnessing social media, speaking to the press, and writing effective op-eds. Students will also share specific insight into what it has been like being approached by the press and how that has informed the way they interview their own subjects.

Excerpts-

  • From the cover The Events of February 14

    by Melissa Falkowski, MSD journalism teacher

    February 14, 2018, started almost like any other normal Valentine's Day.

    In my first two periods, my creative writing students wrote love advice columns and turned famous love poems into "hate" poems—­an activity for the angsty anti–­Valentine's Day students. The day was filled with candy, balloons, stuffed animals, flowers, and a general show of love for each other. In first period, Samantha Fuentes shared chocolate-­covered strawberries from Kilwin's, where she had just started working. At the beginning of second period, we spent fifteen minutes outside for our monthly scheduled fire drill.

    The rest of the day passed pretty uneventfully—­lunch, study hall, and finally newspaper class. I worked with staffers and editors on our upcoming third-­quarter issue of the newspaper and stories scheduled to post to our website. Class and the school day were almost over.

    Then, at 2:21 p.m. the fire alarm sounds. The class stops what they're doing and looks to me for directions. It's not normal for the fire alarm to sound twice in one day, but not totally out of the question, especially if culinary is cooking.

    "We gotta go, guys. Get your stuff," I tell them.

    Some of them grumble, and some of them roll their eyes. We are annoyed and inconvenienced. Haven't we already done this today?

    I grab my cell phone and my keys, grab my emergency folder, and stand at the door counting how many students leave the room—­twenty-­five total, the entire class listed on my fourth-­period roster. I want to make sure that I have them all when I get to my assigned evacuation zone. I close my already locked door and turn left, heading the fifteen feet to the double doors that will take me to the outside hallway.

    The outside stairwell is crowded. I see one of our campus security monitors. I ask her what's going on.

    "Someone set off firecrackers in the 1200 building," she tells me.

    "Okay. Idiots," I tell her as I roll my eyes.

    I turn to two other teachers to tell them.

    The campus monitor calls to me. "Go back. Code Red! Code Red!"

    The other teachers and I call out to the students in the hallway and the stairwell to turn around and go back. I pivot and walk quickly back to my room. As I open my door, I hear an administrator's voice come over the intercom. "Code Red," he says.

    I'm the first teacher back to my hallway. I'm holding the door open as students file in. I'm yelling to kids in the hallway, "Get inside! Right now! Go anywhere. It doesn't matter where you are supposed to be."

    They look confused.

    Colleagues are starting to return to their classrooms and open up. One of them calls down to me and asks what's going on.

    "It's a Code Red!" I yell to her.

    "Are you serious?" she asks.

    "Yes!"

    Two out-­of-­breath students appear on my side of the hallway. I tell them to come inside. Students at the other end of the hallway are filing into classrooms. I decide to close my door. I already feel like I've held it open for too long.

    When I turn and close the door behind me, I see all my students huddled into a corner of the room. They are in the exact place we discussed a month ago after staff training about active shooter situations. I returned from the training and mapped out an area of the room that I could make invisible from the door's window by covering it halfway with paper.

    I move into the corner, pull out the attendance roster from my emergency folder, and start calling names. In total I have...
