Working on the paper collaboratively is a learning experience in journalism, writing, teamwork, and project management/editing.

The editors then make edits to the newspaper and work with the sponsor to do a final edit. For students who participate, they are given the opportunity, the responsibility and abliity to practice their writing skills, meet deadlines, learn people skills (interviewing), etc.
