Evan Howells' elective students at Oregon City's Ogden Middle School are honing their writing skills by publishing an online school newspaper, The Cougar News, available at bit.ly/TheCougarNews.
The publication includes national and local news, from the hurricane in North Carolina to the return of wolves to Oregon. Readers also will find reviews of recently released movies and student-created comics.
"Besides researching and writing articles, students also manage the website," Howells said.
Quality local journalism takes time and money, which comes, in part, from paying readers. If you enjoy articles like this one, please consider supporting us.
