The home page of Jeff Medhurst

Welcome to my website! I am a student teacher at the Werklund School of Education at the University of Calgary. In my previous career, I was a journalist at several different publications and I have a passion for creating, story telling, pop culture, and all sorts of things in between. I was a journalist for The Mountaineer Publishing Co. from June 2015 to March 2016, among a wide variety of other jobs such as turf care and retail.

Here you’ll find my online portfolio containing the majority of my work from school and my career. Please feel free to take a look around and check out some of my studies and lesson plans from my teaching career under Teaching Work, my previous professional work under Journalistic Work, and some of my professional videos under Video Work.

Please feel free to look around, and I hope you enjoy what my eclectic collection has to offer!

News Article Scenarios

In preparing the students to write their news articles for their Provicinal Achievement Tests, I provided them with multiple scenarios they could pick from to write news articles for practice. I formatted the scenarios to look like the ones they would receive in their PAT’s, and chose topics to try and engage them with the material, so I could work on them with the students after their first draft to help hone their article writing skills.
