*six sections, with numerous Internet links, photos
*a link to a taped (58-minute) interview with journalists who have reported from combat zones.
*discussion of three individual journalists, one each from World War II, the Vietnam War, and the Iraq War
*several journalists from current Middle East conflicts
*the technical methods used to transmit news stories
The lesson can be covered in one 55-minute class, or extended to several classes if desired.
