What My Classroom Looks Like During Today’s Video Journalism Workshop

Within one minute of being placed into groups, my journalism students are up and out of the classroom. They have one hour to come up with a topic, conduct interviews, and produce a video (with a written intro and outro for the anchor to read) to fill a three-minute hole.

We don’t have a full class on video journalism, but in a one-credit workshop class that majors have to take four times, I offer a skill that matches student interest.
