Groesbeck High School Journalism includes the TAOG Yearbook Staff as well as the four UIL Journalism Events: News Writing, Feature Writing, Editorial Writing, and Headline Writing.
Yearbook is a class taught by Ms. Casto. It includes design, writing and photography and is for students who are interested in capturing the year and creating a wonderful book of memories for students and staff. The class is open to students of all grades with teacher approval. Students will also be expected to conduct interviews and write articles to submit to the school website. Because most school events take place after school, yearbook staff members are expected to shoot photos at these events.
To compete in one or more of the UIL journalism events, students must attend practices held during advisory, as well as virtual and invitational meets. They must complete multiple practice assignments as well. All of these requirements earn points, and students with the highest number of points will earn spots on the UIL Journalism Team. Those who earn a spot on the team will be taken to the District meet in the spring. Those students can also advance to Regional and State levels.
