PBS NewsHour - Student Reporting Labs

Recognizing that informed and engaged young people are critical for a healthy democracy, the PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs program connects middle and high school students to local PBS stations and news professionals in their community to produce original, student-generated news video reports. The young people who participate in the project learn how to report, problem-solve, synthesize information and investigate important topics: journalism as a form of learning.

PBS NewsHour’s Student Reporting Labs offers a project-based video journalism curriculum that addresses Common Core non-fiction literacy standards while building critical thinking, communications and citizenship skills.  The lesson plan that many of our Constitution Reporting Labs used to introduce the topic was developed by teachers in South Carolina and Arizona.
