WHAT IS IT?
Tiger’s Eye is Newton North High School’s online opinion magazine. Tiger’s Eye serves to showcase student voices on topics related to social justice issues, current events, politics, and pop culture.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Students can submit pieces once a month related to anything about current events, pop culture, or social justice issues. There will also be an OPTIONAL monthly prompt, which will be open-ended and broad. Example prompts include:
- Discuss something from the 2016 election that you care about.
- Write about a pop culture figure that represents the best or worst of our society.
- Talk about the media and race, gender, or sexuality.
- Political correctness—friend or foe? Why?
Meetings will be held twice a month on Tuesdays after school in room 354. At these first monthly meetings, we will discuss the latest in current events, pop culture, and politics. Based on our discussion, we will then come up with our next prompt for the month. The second monthly meeting is a time for club members to bring in their rough drafts and peer-edit each other’s work, as well as spend their own time revising and asking any questions that come up.
Members should join the Facebook group, NNHS Tiger’s Eye, to receive updates and get the schedules for club meetings.
WHAT DOES MY PIECE NEED TO LOOK LIKE?
Pieces can be as long as you want, but preferably between 3-6 paragraphs. Pieces should:
- Relate somehow to a monthly prompt or timely topic, with a personal twist
- Contain NO racist, sexist, homophobic, or otherwise offensive language
- Have a title and an image attached to them.
