Journalism Teachers of Miami-Dade County


This web site is for journalism teachers of Miami-Dade County. Advisers from the area will be able to easily edit pages, upload files, and join discussions.

The site was started with the statement by the advisers of Journalism Day requesting that the School Board of Miami-Dade County stop its attempts to ban "Vamos A Cuba!" from our schools.

The web space can be edited by local journalism teachers, powered by the wiki software technology used for Wikipedia, an online encyclopedia that is receiving contributions from members all over the world. Besides helping our efforts as journalism teachers, this service is a wonderful tool for our classrooms.


Feel free to add your own ideas, links, resources on this page or under 'Discussion'. Just click 'Edit This Page' above or the link for discussion. Add your name and / or email for communication purposes if you would like. Thank you.
