The Tiger Tales provides an opportunity for students with a passion for writing and photography to submit work for the online school newspaper (www.jthstigertales.org) as well as for the print copy several times a school year. The school newspaper is written by and for the student body of Joliet West. Students interested in Journalism should take Intermediate Multimedia Journalism & Writing, where you will be introduced to the world of multimedia, learn various forms of journalistic writing across the media, print, web, and broadcast, as well as basic web and hard copy production and editing. Podcasting and Broadcasting (IHSA TV as well as TNN feature assignments) are also part of this class. If you cannot take the class, please see Mrs. Galloy to get involved, we welcome any and all help.
Advanced students who have taken and successfully passed Intermediate Multimedia Journalism & Writing can take Advanced Multimedia and Production year after year where students have the opportunity to serve as student editors to create and publish the school newspaper and yearbook.
