Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Lauri J. Vaughan
These days, high school journalism textbooks suffer a shorter shelf life than those published for advanced biology classes. Hall and Aimone's latest edition is likely to last several years, and for schools unable to afford sooner substitution, contains enough solid material to last considerably longer. The combination of hundreds of fresh images from actual student publications and dynamic page layout make this text's design its most appealing attribute. Teens will pore over its pages to see what their peers have done, be drawn into the accompanying text, and no doubt be inspired. Fine chapters on radio and television, photography, advertising, and page design are included, but the focus is clearly on print journalism. For veterans seeking an updated approach or teachers responsible for producing a yearbook or newspaper who would like to add a curriculum, this text will serve as a neat and comprehensive road map. The textbook's weaknesses lie primarily in lack of analysis of the profession. Although information is provided on several professional organizations, watchdog groups such as Free Press, Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) and Media Matters for America are not covered. The chapter on journalism history recalls the controversy surrounding 1988 presidential candidate Gary Hart and makes the questionable claim that "the media overanalyzed" Anita Hill's sexual harassment accusations of 1991 U.S. Supreme Court justice nominee Clarence Thomas. Unfortunately these allusions are not discussed in further detail. Similarly the respective shrinking and growing of print and Web-based media is observed, but little analysis of the dramatic shift is included. The text would bestrengthened considerably if a chapter dealing with such pressing issues was included. Likewise the Further Reading section should offer titles that delve deeper into professional analysis. The attendant student workbook is nice but not necessary because the text already contains follow-up chapter exercises. The teacher workbook, which contains little else but the filled-in blanks of the student workbook, is even less necessary. Shortcomings aside, the dynamic freshness and comprehensive nature of this edition make it a solid selection for journalism teachers. Reviewer: Lauri J. Vaughan
School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up–This updated, full-color edition of a text first published in 1986 includes traditional high school newspapers, yearbook production, and broadcast journalism. Introductory chapters cover the history of American journalism, the rights and responsibilities of journalists, and style conventions. Chapters on writing news, sports, features, editorials, columns, headlines, and captions follow. Information on advertising, photography, and careers in journalism rounds out the coverage. A “Digital Age” chapter is new to this edition. Other updates include current events (e.g., the Don Imus controversy), emerging technologies such as RSS feeds and podcasts, and digital photography. Despite some discussion of daily newspapers’ declining numbers, the careers chapter devotes minimal attention to their uncertain future and keeps the focus strictly skills-oriented. Some advice borders on quaint: “knowledge of typing and use of computers are becoming critical.” Pages feature samples from high school publications that demonstrate concepts from the text. Two quibbles are the almost unreadable small print in some images, and images from the reverse pages that bleed through the scans of student publications. Sidebars provide more in-depth information on specific chapter topics as well as definitions and industry tips. Exercises that conclude each chapter provide many opportunities for students to practice the skills described. Some lengthy guidelines, ethics codes, and rules for various writing scenarios make for a detailed but dry reading experience. Overall, this textbook presents a popular elective topic in a visually appealing, appropriately unbiased,format, but it’s not an essential purchase for libraries that own the 2003 edition.–Amy Pickett, Ridley High School, Folsom, PA
