Connolly School students in Ms. Susan Gielbeda’s and Ms. Erin O’Beirne’s fourth-grade classes have been studying the art of journalism in Writing Workshop. The students have been working on writing feature articles as well as “beat” stories. NBC field reporter Checkey Beckford visited Connolly School to meet and mentor the students. The students were able to learn firsthand what it takes to be a journalist. Then they pitched some feature story ideas, which Ms. Beckford helped explain how they could further develop.
