Is it hard not to plagiarize? Where do story ideas come from? How do writers decide what to put in a story? Fifth-grade journalism students at Valley View Elementary had great questions to ask Rockford Squire editor and reporter Beth Altena on Monday, April 20. The kids put out their own student-run paper and were excited to hear from a local writer.
