Curriculum Fostering Journalistic Inquiry and Media Learning

The PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs is building the next generation of public media with a digital journalism curriculum, as well as local PBS station mentors and the opportunity to tell important community stories to the world. The program creates educational experiences for middle school and high school students in classrooms and afterschool environments. Students engage in journalistic inquiry, media production, and student-centered learning that build critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork, news literacy, and communication skills. In the past, students have tackled such topics as the effects of climate change, the need for diversity in the gaming industry, and the impact and perceptions of misinformation. They have produced STEM stories on how engineering is reshaping people’s lives and how health-care innovators are redefining what it means to be “healthy.” By giving youth a voice and the opportunity to reach millions of people via the PBS NewsHour broadcast and digital platforms, the program inspires youth to speak up and be part of the solution.
