“Reflections on the News Literacy Project" now on YouTube

The News Literacy Project has produced a new video that focuses on middle school and high school students and teachers discussing their experiences as participants in the project.


The 4 ½-minute video also includes a rap and a song written and performed by high school students as their final projects for the NLP unit.  The featured students are from the Perspectives Charter School and The Reavis School in Chicago, Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda, Md., and Williamsburg Collegiate Charter School in Brooklyn, N.Y. Teachers from all four schools are included.The “Wikipedia Rap,” which opens the video, and the song “It’s the First Amendment,” which closes it, were done by AP government students at Walt Whitman High School.
