These free presentations promote strong writing and interviewing skills and teach the fundamentals of journalism. We also encourage students and teachers to participate in our award- winning Young Reporters Program. Not only do young writers learn the basics of reporting, they also have the opportunity to have their news stories printed in Bear Essential newspapers throughout Arizona!

  1. How Bear Essential News is Made (for grades 2–4). Starting with the reporter’s initial story idea, Bear’s editors walk students through the process of creating a newspaper. Students get to see and handle a variety of fascinating materials, including original front cover art. Bear’s secrets are revealed!
  2. Introduction to Journalism: the 5 W’s & H (for grades 3–4). Bear’s editors introduce students to the basic tenets of journalism. What events in the world are newsworthy? Why did they occur? Who has the info you need for your news story? Students learn to identify the 5 W’s and H in a story and how to structure their stories.
  3. Bear’s Writing Tips (for grades 3–8). Bear Essential News has earned honors from the Tucson Area Reading Council and the Arizona Reading Association/International Reading Association. But what makes Bear’s stories so special? Students can learn what it takes to be a good writer from this common core-based presentation.
  4. Interviewing Skills (for grades 4–8). This presentation introduces students to the many facets of interviewing. From selecting appropriate interview subjects to structuring questions, students learn how to gather information and to communicate effectively. 5. Journalism as a Career (for grades 4–8).

Students learn what it takes to be a journalist, from having an inquisitive personality to education requirements. Bear’s editors give candid responses and share the ups and downs of life as a reporter or editor. All presentations are FREE and designed to be interactive, informative and fun!

Each presentation is about 50 minutes. If you’d like more information, or to schedule a presentation for your class or a group of classes, please call the appropriate number for your area.

GIRL SCOUTS OF SOUTHERN ARIZONA

Out-of-the classroom activities are at the core of Girl Scouts! Girls get to lead their own adventures and team up with others in an all-girl environment to choose the exciting, hands-on activities that interest them most. The idea is to learn by doing, and at Girl Scouts, they’ll do lots of it. The main components of the Girl Scout program are STEM, outdoor activities, life skills, and entrepreneurship and while girls may be exposed to these subjects at school or in other youth programs at Girl Scouts they experience them in a uniquely girl-led, collaborative way that puts them on a path to a lifetime of leadership, adventure and success.

GIRL SCOUTS OF SOUTHERN ARIZONA

Camp together, Grow forever. Camp experiences and friendships are made to last a lifetime. Between the nature walks, archery, tie-dye, songs, and sisterhood, campers are sure to develop new skills and come home with confidence and wonderful stories. Camp helps our kids build resilience, confidence, and learn how to build community. Our trained and caring staff supports Girl Scouts ages 6 – 17 in discovering who they are and what they can become.

    Applications now open on WishesForTeachers.org; At least 100 teachers will

    have wish granted

     

    SCOTTSDALE, AZ – Arizona’s teachers can now submit their wish on how they

    would use $5,000 for their classrooms. Fiesta Bowl Charities Wishes for

    Teachers will provide more than 100 grants of $5,000 each to Arizona K-12

    public or charter school teachers.

     

    Teachers fill out an online application form at WishesForTeachers.org

    detailing their school or classroom need and, after meeting the criteria,

    wishes are selected by random drawing to receive a $5,000 grant. The

    application period runs through Friday, November 3.

     

    “Wishes for Teachers hits the nail right on the head of the Fiesta Bowl

    mission to support Arizonans through education, youth, and sports,” said

    Steve Leach, Fiesta Bowl Chairman of the Board of Directors. “Education is

    the foundation for success in life, from youth through adulthood. We’re

    honored to be able to equip our teachers with extra tools and make them even

    more impactful than they are today.”

     

    Fiesta Bowl Charities will match up to $500,000 in contributions, with the

    ultimate goal to substantially increase the overall funding from 2016 and the

    number of teachers who will enjoy a $5,000 wish.

     

    “We couldn’t have been more pleased with our first year’s achievements

    in helping Arizona’s teachers make their classrooms better. Teachers give

    so much in their daily commitment to building our future leaders,” said

    Fiesta Bowl Executive Director Mike Nealy. “Wishes for Teachers gives a

    boost of support for our teachers and helps them create new educational

    tracks, purchase much-needed current-day equipment and inspire growth in

    their students.”

     

    Fiesta Bowl Charities created Wishes for Teachers in 2016 and granted

    $500,000 to 100 teachers statewide, with each teacher receiving $5,000 to

    bolster resources in schools and benefit students. The Fiesta Bowl

    organization saw that many teachers spent money on their own to enhance their

    classroom experience and developed a program to aid teachers in that effort.

    To see a complete list of the wishes granted, please visit

    WishesForTeachers.org.

     

    In addition to the financial gift, selected teachers have the opportunity to
