  • This 4-video series provides a crash course for students participating in the UIL Journalism contests. Each video covers the basics of one of the four contests.
  • We recommend that students first review the sample prompt (for News, Features and Editorials) and then listen to the video. If time allows, watch the PowerPoint presentation. It fleshes out many of the points made in the video.
  • When you encounter a slide, you might want to pause the video and take a moment to read the information. The slides are set for 7 seconds each, but that may not be time enough for some students to read each one.
