Lesson Plans

The American Society of News Editors’ Youth Journalism Initiative offers training modules in 24 essential areas of journalism. To access the training modules which include a video lecture and quizzes, click here. Although there is no specific sequence to start the training modules, we encourage you to start with the Journalism Fundamentals module, “What is News?”

Lesson plans that help you take each training module into your classroom with additional PowerPoints, handouts and other materials have been developed. The What is News? lesson has been posted and more new lesson plans will be posted this week so be sure to check back often! A special thanks to Jami Williams, an award-winning teacher, for her work in preparing these lessons!
