The Chieftain

The Chieftain is the official student run publication of Brother Rice High School. The Chieftain comes out monthly, with additional special editions coming out as required. It is written, edited, and published by the journalism class. The class is made up of sophomores, juniors, and seniors who enjoy writing and would like to learn more about journalism and the process that goes into writing and publishing an article.

In the class, students learn the stages of the journalistic process, including the planning, research, interviewing, writing, editing, and revising of each article. Students gain experience by writing a number of different types of stories from investigative to entertainment. Students work collaboratively to produce each edition of the Chieftain, performing tasks such as writing, editing, and page layout and design. Students in the class do not necessarily need to have a desire to go into journalism after high school, though the class does serve as good exposure to help a student identify if journalism my be a field that they are interested in.
