Student reporters write articles for potential publication in The Korea Daily (Joongang Ilbo) as well as the website at Although The Korea Daily is the largest Korean-language newspaper in the United States, JSR articles are written in English.

During the session, students will plan, write, and revise an article every three weeks. Under the supervision of editors, they will work to revise these articles for potential publication. Additionally, there are electronic worksheets and in-person workshops to improve the students’ journalistic skills as well as a field trip to a journalistic organization in the Southern California region.
