ePals Corporation today announced the launch of  News Now, a new learning center on www.ePals.com/journalism dedicated to helping high school students learn professional news and editorial reporting skills. The center provides resources aligned with “real world” journalism practices and communications standards such as the Common Core Standards in the United States, and encourages students to develop and showcase their own reporting and journalism skills.

 
News Now
provides a safe, collaborative environment where students can:
  • Read and comment on professional and student-generated news organized by topic areas including World, Sports, Science, Travel, and Lifestyle 
  • Gain college and career skills by writing and publishing their own stories to the website, and maintaining a portfolio of work they can share with others
  • Review and analyze different types of journalism with a toolbox that helps them generate hard news, opinion editorials, special interest pieces, and features
  • Participate in assignment desks
