Journalistic English

I will be teaching a course in journalistic English at the junior undergraduate level next school year. The idea is that the students will then become campus reporters for our new English language newpaper. I have no training in journalism and have never been a reporter.

Has anyone ever taught journalistic English at the college level? Do you have any advice? Did you use a text book to help students develop their journalistic style syntax and vocabulary? Any help or advice is appreaciated.

Many thanks.
