Educators learn media literacy by producing artist profiles

In August, teachers and public media mentors joined the PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs to participate in the #SRLbootcamp2014 located in the Washington D.C. area.

The bootcamp's goal was to provide teaching tools to help foster the next generation of journalists through media literacy in the classroom. The groups were tasked with the challenge of producing character profiles of local artists. Here are their final results.
