Journalism production in the classroom

PBS NewsHour’s Student Reporting Labs connects students with a network of public broadcasting mentors and an innovative journalism curriculum to develop digital media, critical thinking and communication skills while producing original news reports. PBS Wisconsin Education producers support schools with storytelling, editing, and production techniques as students craft their news stories.
