Each six-week module emphasizes a particular theme of writing and technical skills that will help the students in their future endeavors (college/careers). Students will be able to submit articles, stories, poems, artwork, comics and blogs to the online newspaper, and begin an active portfolio of work.

In addition, each module is project-based so students end knowing how to use that module's software on a highly functional basis - these are not exclusively intro classes. The moderators want participants to be able to use these tools on their own after the class.
