The Kids' Newsroom

Extra! Extra! Read all about it… In the Kids' Newsroom, our students learn the craft of journalism including investigative writing and research. Our classroom transforms into a working newsroom, complete with editorial staff, reporters, columnists and headline writers. Each student plays multiple roles and works together to create an e-newspaper, as well as a hard copy newspaper, with real stories about their local school and community.

These reporters learn techniques for crafting news stories, writing persuasive editorial essays and interviewing news-makers. Students edit each other’s work, take photographs and publish their newspaper. Have an idea for a news story? Call our Newsroom Hotline today!
