The Middle School Newspaper, De Scalibus, which reports on Northridge news, local news and world news. A major goal of the club is for students to write in a format that is freer than a class assignment. Another goal is for students to learn how to grab the interest of a reader. Interesting aspects of the newspaper include the “fact-is-stranger-than-fiction” stories that come from the students’ research, the student camaraderie, and the indirect learning of writing skills.
Skills & Benefits
Students grow their writing abilities while also building their team leadership skills.
Club members are required to produce two print pieces per quarter. There will be no meetings outside of class, however students should be prepared to devote two to three hours per quarter beyond the normal Activity Period hours in order to complete papers.
