Check Out The Herald's New Photos

Irene X.'s photos have been uploaded to Hillwood's school webite. Feel free to download them and use them in blog postings. As time allows, help write captions for each image.

Read what makes a good caption. Hint: It is essentially following the five W's of news writing (who, what, when, where, why). Also, avoid stating the obvious or using hokey phrases, and always remember -- if you don't have something nice to say, then don't say it. Additionally, use only first names and last initial in reference to your fellow students.

Here are some sample captions to consider:

BAD: Here Juliene types on a computer.
(This states the obvious and spells his name incorrectly.)

GOOD: Julien G., a seventh-grader at Hillwood Academic Day School, is working on an article about how to create your own super hero for The Herald.
