In today’s fast-paced information world, the ability to think critically, communicate clearly, and ascertain the veracity of information is vital. Our civic journalism club helps develop these essential skills in a controlled, safe way. Students learn the technological skills to create and publish podcasts, weblogs, and news stories along different kinds of media platforms. Along the way, they gain valuable exposure to new concepts and ideas, to different opinions and perspectives, to a range of information styles and approaches.
Currently based at Omaha’s Monroe Middle School, our clubs help build the foundation for the next generation of critical thinkers and truth-seekers.
