Journalist’s Toolbox: Lessons, Videos, and Workshops for Students
Posted by Pulitzer Center on September 8, 2020
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?
Our “Journalist’s Toolbox” series equips students to answer these questions and embark on their own journalistic projects.
Each lesson contains:
- An instructional video featuring world-class journalists and editors sharing tips on a journalism skill
- An interactive lesson for distance learning or in-class work
- Activity prompts to apply students’ new knowledge
Lessons focus on:
- Finding under-reported stories in the news, and in your own community
- Descriptive writing
- Interview techniques
The Pulitzer Center education team and the journalists we work with are available to facilitate workshops for your class on these skills. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a virtual workshop!
