Youth and the Media

Monday, October 10, 2011

A recent study by the Newspaper Association of America found that students with journalism experience show higher scores in their high school GPAs, ACT composite scores, ACT English scores, College freshman English grades, and College freshman GPAs.

However, some believe that children’s exposure to the news should be limited due to the sometime graphic and depressing nature of some stories.

But what about the kids? Do they want to watch or read the news?

Great job on your video blog. You chose a great topic. I think it's very interesting to hear from the children themselves how they view the news. Media intake is definitely changing throughout generations and this is an eye-opener of just how much journalists need to work to keep up with this changing landscape.
