Give Students a Voice in the 2016 Election

Letters to the Next President 2.0 engages and connects youth aged 13–18, as they research, write, and make media to voice their opinions on issues that matter to them in the upcoming election. Throughout the spring, KQED Education will host a series of multimedia skill-building activities, called Media Makes, for teachers and students to practice digital media making that facilitates dialogue around critical issues in this election. Each Media Make includes an Invitation—a compelling case for each media format and its unique value for expressing civic arguments; a Prompt—a clear theme and call to action with specific parameters for student submissions; Submission Process—a unique hashtag for each Media Make and a Google form to collect URLs and emails for each submission; and Instructional Supports—a recorded webinar moderated by a wide range of partners to provide resources, host live conversations, and point to technology tools for educators. On the website, teachers will find updates about Media Makes launch dates, submission deadlines, and webinars.
