The One Summer Chicago Program and The News School program have been filled with proficiency in journalism and increased knowledge about current events in society. Areas in journalism where correspondents have gained proficiency are the following: grammar and punctuation, research, avoidance of plagiarism, proofreading, and the importance of being truthful in writing.
In addition, these up-and-coming journalists have also gained increased knowledge about the society in which they live. Whether it be knowledge about the COVID-19 pandemic or new fossils discovered, their experiences have genuinely broadened the scope of the world from a different level of understanding.
In addition to proficiency in journalism and increased knowledge events in our society, interns learned to understand the meaning of hard work better. Writing takes a significant amount of focus and self-discipline not to get too distracted. During their time at The News School, their accomplishments reveal that one can accomplish great things through working hard in staying focused and self-disciplined. The correspondents will take this experience with The News School to greater heights in their lives.
