Mrs. Olsen’s Mass Communications Class

We had visitors on Thursday, 3/31/11 from Roseau, Minn. Each year Mrs. Olsen brings her mass communications students in grades 10-12 to the Grand Forks Herald to learn about the newspaper. The students receive the Grand Forks Herald each day during the school year through our Newspapers in Education Program. Mrs. Olsen uses the newspaper as a teaching tool. On the tour, the students learned how the newspaper is produced each day from start to finish. They also had the chance to visit with employees in each department of the Herald. The group also planned on touring WDAZ TV and Studio One in the afternoon.

Students listen to Tom Dennis, Herald Editiorial Page Editor, talk about the editorial/opinion pages.
