OK, a new topic: Help me plan a journalism club

    All right, since there's such a dearth of new topics, here's one:

    I'd like to start a journalism club at the youth center where I work. I think it would probably last about 20 weeks or so.

    My thoughts include doing a curriculum on media, newspapers, writing, editing and layout and then trying to put together some kind of newsletter and distributing to the two high schools and youth center. (Or it could just be a bulletin board tacked up in my office; I have no budget.)

    Any suggestion for topics? Or activities?

    Note: These kids won't care about the state of the industry. They live in Morocco, so media is state-run anyway and they won't be looking for jobs. It's possible the thing ends up as a writing club.

    Also, it's going to be multi-lingual, which doesn't really make a difference except that I will need someone else to do editing and things like that since I won't understand most of it. It's tough to give direction when you have a limited Arabic vocabulary and no French whatsoever.
