PBS NewsHour launches new website for student reporting
| Nov 12, 2010
The PBS NewsHour has launched the Student Reporting Labs website, a program that connects students with professional mentors at their local public broadcasting station. This is designed to allow the students to produce original news reports with youth perspective on important national issues. The website has a collaborative space where students interact with professional journalists and their peers, who are working on the same topic.
The program also includes a news literacy and digital media curriculum, with 9-15 lesson plans, designed to nurture students’ understanding of news, build a foundation of civic engagement, and spark a life-long interest in current events.
