Understanding media literacy and the role of local journalists - PBS NewsHour Classroom

VIDEO of Speaking at PBS NewsHour Classroom Extra on Wed: 10/27/2021
In celebration of Media Literacy Week, NewsHour Classroom hosted its Educator Voice Zoom series with Frances Kai-Hwa Wang, one of the NewsHour’s newest community correspondents, and Liz Ramos, history teacher at Alta Loma High School in Rancho Cucomonga, Calif., and curriculum writer for Classroom’s Journalism in Action website.

The PBS conversation was hosted by Sari Beth Rosenberg, NYC public school history teacher, and was attended by dozens of educators across the country.

The conversation focused on the role of journalism in the past up to the present and Classroom’s Journalism in Action: Civic Engagement and Primary Sources Through Key Moments in History, a fun, interactive website based on resources from the Library of Congress. (We are looking for teacher testers for the site. Choose one of the activities, tell us how it went with your students, and we’ll send you a $50 VISA gift card. Email for more information.)
