Times Review reporter Alex Cooper answers questions from the Arrow Heights Elementary grade 5/6 class about working as a reporter.

Times Review reporter quizzed by kids

On May 11, reporter Alex Cooper came to answer some questions in the Arrow Heights Elementary grade 5/6 classroom.

The class was excited when they heard that Alex was coming, mostly because grade 5/6 is creating their own class newspaper. Our teacher, Mrs. Thompson, believed it would be a great opportunity for the class to learn from a professional reporter.

The kids asked Alex many questions, such as: “What is your favourite part of being a reporter?” The response was: “Getting to do a new story every week.”

“How long have you been a reporter?” Response: “I have been a journalist for about two years now.”

“What is the hardest part of being a reporter?” Response: “The hardest part of being a reporter is probably thinking of new stories every week that people will find interesting to read.”

I asked the class after Alex had left, what they found most interesting about his talk to the class.

Forty per cent of the class said that learning about how to make a newspaper was the most interesting to them.

The other 60 per cent included things like: learning how to take pictures, learning about his favourite stories/weirdest stories and the hardest/easiest things to do in a newspaper.

It was a fun experience for all, as well as an interesting one.

Thanks Alex!
