Missouri High School Journalism Project offers new lessons

This fall the  Missouri School of Journalism launched the Missouri High School Journalism Project to help with news literacy in middle and high schools.

A no-cost, stress-free way for high school teachers to refresh their curriculum for lessons dealing with journalism, communication arts and related topics is now available.

The Missouri High School Journalism Project is a 25-module curriculum designed and developed by the faculty of the Missouri School of Journalism, the world’s first journalism school.

Individual module landing pages set you up with an overview of the lesson’s activities:

  1. Complete lesson plan
  2. “Do” activities
  3. Worksheets, examples and answer keys to support activities
  4. Readings and resources
  5. Various types of formative assessment
  6. A summative assessment at the end of each lesson in the form of a 10-question multiple choice quiz with feedback on correct and incorrect answers

The plans also state the learning objectives to which those activities and readings are aligned and sets the expectations. All materials are available as a link to a Google Doc, Google Form, mp4 or jpeg/png file or link to YouTube, so teachers are able to duplicate materials for easy use in their classroom.
