Yearbook staffs start thinking about 9/11 anniversary coverage

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

This weekend will mark the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the U.S. Many yearbook staffs will likely choose to include some form of 9/11 anniversary coverage in this year’s book, particularly those in areas directly impacted.

This week on the JEA’s website, their quarterly publication – Journalism Education Todaycreated a slide show looking back at some of the coverage student publications provided on the attacks 10 years ago.

The images bring back many memories, and might just provide some ideas for this year’s anniversary coverage.
