The Right Angle (shortly TRA among the Mass Media students) is a bimonthly newspaper produced by the Açı High School students.  TRA has been set up in 2009 in print, and has faced the web challenge in 2011 becoming interactive and international.

Mass media is the nervous system of democracy and the ability to easily publish text, pictures and video is changing the face of journalism and media as we know it. This gigantic and powerful world of sharing information is enriched by video-journalism and Skype-interviews, sharpening our video blogging skills while promoting critical and analytical thinking.

We are happy and proud to come out with the new face of TRA this year which includes a few changes and additions allowing us to attain what we always wished for – to reach out to the youth with honest and authentic journalism.  These changes are listed on the right side.

We invite you to read, comment and be part of this 21st century youth publication.
