activities help teachers initiate thoughtful discussions among
their students on the news media and its impact on society. These
activities as well as SNN's Lesson Plans can be integrated into
most subjects, such as: language arts, history, geography, science,
french, and music.
Through online journalism and SNN your students learn to think
critically, to assess complex and sometimes contradictory information,
to express their thoughts in writing, and to use technology
as a tool for communicating ideas and news.
Here are some ideas for activities
that you can integrate into your classroom.
