The News Literacy Project's latest video captures the project's impact in schools in New York City, Chicago and Bethesda, Md. through interviews with principals and students and excerpts from student projects at each location.
Featured student work include a mini-documentary, "East Harlem IS," produced in 2009 by middle school students at East Harlem's STARS Prep Academy MS 45 with NLP journalists in an after-school program; an audio report, "Peer Pressure," created in 2010 by middle school students from the Reavis School in Chicago; the "Wikipedia Rap," and "It's the First Amendment," written and performed by students from Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda in 2009 and 2010, respectively.
The video was first shown at a national conference on news literacy at Stony Brook University on March 17.
