Fort Mill High School Participates in the PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Lab
Recognizing that informed and engaged young people are critical for a healthy democracy, the PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Lab connects 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.
The project also includes a news literacy/digital media curriculum and online collaborative space designed to transform their understanding of news, build a foundation of civic engagement and spark a life-long interest in current events.
The Reporting Labs were made possible by a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
Fort Mill High School's television production class have been participating in the PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs. The students are enjoying the opportunity to work on a national level and showcase their work through PBS Newshour.
