PARSIPPANY — On Monday, March 26, Girl Scout Cadettes learn how to create a news article on Parsippany Focus at Parsippany-Troy Hills Public Library, 449 Halsey Road. The troops attending the presentation were Troops 95609, 95610, 95089 and 94372.
Along their media journey the Girl Scouts will earn three badges, the girls will learn how to monitor, how to influence and how to cultivate media.
The publisher came to the library to help educate the girls as part of their media journey, and to teach how to create an informational article.
Mrs. Bruggeman, a Parsippany Girl Scout leader, took a picture of all the Girl Scouts and Frank Cahill. We uploaded the picture to the Focus servers, then wrote a caption under the picture. Then we wrote the story answering the questions: Who, What, When, Where, Why and How. We then described the badges that we are earning for the media journey.
Mr. Frank Cahill also discussed and showed us the proper identification reporters use.
We also read other articles and answered the questions required to write a story.
Mrs. Maria Messana, a Parsippany Girl Scout leader, organized the presentation with Parsippany Focus.
The Cadettes are students from Brooklawn Middle School and Central Middle School.
