Student Broadcasting for K-12 Schools

This is a wikibook in progress. This page is currently a stub for discussion that anyone can add to or edit.

Note: It is expected that pages will be linked to each outline item so that this becomes the "Table of Contents" page for the mature textbook.

If you are new to wiki syntax - which is MUCH easier than HTML - we recommend you take a look at the excellent one page wiki editing cheatsheet that you can print out.

Use the "Edit" button along the top to change any page. To create new pages simply put double brackets around a word or phrase that becomes the page name like this [[Cool New Page]]. The example page link would red, which indicates that only a page "stub" or placeholder exists. You can then click that red link to add information to the newly created page.

Where to Start?

This outline is only a rough organizer that started life as a few lines from an email to a mail list I belong to for teachers of broadcasting. Feel free to edit it as needed. Please add to the outline so that we can begin to make a good textbook.

It could have different sections to focus on....just some off the top of my head examples:

Broadcast Journalism Overview

This would be a good place for an overview of the organization and goals of the text.

I have a few goals that i would like to submit. Wondering if i am using the right protocol first. Let me know. I will do some reading on the cheatsheet for homework before i begin submitting any information. (by Leo - 3/6/06)

Admin note: No problem...but probably should be on the "Discussion" page tab that is for discussing the page and changes. It's to the left of the Edit tab. ;-) Some wiki projects are picky about comments in the pages.
