WELCOME TO THE ORCHARD CORE
On March 13th, 2023, The Orchard Core launched during the Winterm course Producing Pulitzers with Mrs. Brady, Mr. Layne, and Ms. Niemeyer.
The Orchard Core is a media house entirely run by Orchard middle school students. They are responsible for ALL of the writing, editing, photography, storyboarding, and content creation. Whenever you see an Orchard story or post with the tag "The Orchard Core" that’s all student's voices.
Producing Pulitzers is focused on all of the different angles of media and journalism. Students have learned from experts in the fields of journalism, film, and TV and radio broadcasting by visiting their campuses and by inviting them into our classroom as guest speakers. Field trips include trips to a few local businesses to practice write-ups about their businesses and products, and also to a college campus to learn about majoring in journalism from professors and students. Our class will culminate in students creating content to be shared with the Orchard community on its social media and student section of the website.
