Product Description
If you've been assigned to teach a media literacy, multimedia communications, or good old fashioned Journalism I and aren't sure where to begin, or if you'd like to propose such a course for your school/district, or if you'd just like to update your current course, this curriculum is for you. The download is a fully editable Word Doc, so you can tailor it to your needs!

This is a curriculum proposal for a one-semester high school (all levels) course. It includes a course overview (for a course catalogue), and overviews for six units. Units cover the First Amendment (including 21st issues and determining credible and authoritative sources of news), Interviewing/Reporting Basics, News Writing Basics, Design Basics, Video Basics, and Social Media Savvy.

Each unit includes a duration suggestion, a unit overview with student objectives, big ideas, essential questions, suggested resources (with links, if possible), and assessment suggestions. In addition, the curriculum includes a CCSS alignment grid, showing which ELA CCSS standards each unit would address. In addition, the alignment grid shows cross-curricular standards with the Michigan Social Studies Standards and Art Standards that would be addressed in this course.

This curriculum is a proposal/guide. It doesn't include the actual assignments, assessments, etc.
