What you'll learn
The press may be free, but is it a free-for-all? Is it ever OK to clean up a quote or digitally manipulate a photograph? This professional development workshop teaches educators the key principles of ethical journalism. Using real-life case studies, participants debate how to apply these standards, experiencing the decision-making process that goes on behind-the-scenes in journalism. They receive tools and strategies that will allow them to take these topics back to their students, helping them become more informed media consumers.
This workshop includes an interactive lesson with a Newseum educator, teaching strategies and resources, and a gallery exploration guide.
