Let's Hear From Students! SRL Journalists Discuss Media Literacy Strategies
Student Reporting Labs journalists from Salt Lake City area high schools will discuss how covering the midterm elections and producing video stories about economic challenges make students better news consumers and journalism ambassadors to their peers. Station mentors will talk about how to make the most of SRL connections to teachers and school communities, and when and how to use student-produced content. NewsHour Extra’s producer will give a sneak peak of a new Library of Congress interactive, exploring the role of journalism in American history, and demonstrate NewsHour current events lesson plans that enable teachers to use NewsHour stories in social studies, English, science and economics classes.
