Teach Youth Radio

Hey teachers!

Are you ready to Drop That Knowledge?

Youth Radio has free curriculum aids that can help you frame issues through the lens of youth produced content. Let the student journalists of Youth Radio help you reach your students.

Every month Teach Youth Radio offers up a new “News Break” based on one of our recent reports or commentaries. Each News Break features:

  1. How teachers can align the Youth Radio story to National Standards in the classroom.
  2. Suggestions for lesson plans that link the story’s content to your classroom’s themes and subject areas.
  3. Suggestions for lesson plans that explore media literacy, using the story to re-read mainstream media.
  4. Bios of the Youth Radio reporters who produced the story.
  5. A list of resources and further research related to the story’s themes.
  6. Links to Youth Radio’s media production techniques as guides and inspiration for your students’ creative media-making projects.

This month’s News Break “Secret Dating” has an emphasis on Language Arts, Health, and Critical Media Literacy.
