PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs: Learning Journalism by Doing
Through the PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs (SRL), middle and high school students learn journalism, video production, media literacy and critical thinking. The hands-on curriculum sends students into their communities across the country to report multimedia pieces and connects them to mentors at their local PBS stations.
“Everything is fast paced, so we got more done in a day than I would in a month. It pushes you to get the story done while wanting to try your best,” said Mary Williams, a rising senior at Hughes STEM High School in Cincinnati. “The most important thing I learned in the Academy is that you should always be prepared and instead of waiting to do things you should do it as soon as possible."
