In this lesson, students analyze how journalists use interviews to research and tell under-reported stories. They then apply those tips to planning, conducting, and editing their own interviews.
The world is full of stories, both far afield and in your own backyard. What stories tend to go under-reported, and how can we seek them out? What tools does a journalist use to find and tell stories that engage and inform audiences, while uplifting issues that don't often make headlines?
This series equips students to answer these questions and embark on their own journalistic projects, at home or in their communities. Each lesson contains an instructional video featuring world-class journalists and editors sharing tips on a journalism skill, a printable lesson guide perfect for distance learning or in-class work, and activity prompts to apply students' new knowledge to a creative project of their own.
