Journalist’s Resource: New site to help journalism educators

I just received notice of this nifty website to help journalism educators in classrooms and I perused the feature writing syllabus. It’s very good. The site was created and is maintained by the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard University and is part of the Carnegie-Knight Initiative on the Future of Journalism Education project.

Here is the information as received:
