The PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs supports teachers and young people to report on important issues in their community, creating impactful video reports for the national NewsHour Extra audience. Along with technical instruction on the use of cameras and editing equipment, this program also includes a meaningful focus on understanding the role of journalism in society and developing broader communication skills, including listening, asking questions, public speaking, and finding, analyzing and evaluating the quality of information.
