NWP Radio—From Newsroom to Classroom

May 9, 2013

What do you get when you pair KQED , the public radio and television station in San Francisco, with National Writing Project teachers? You get Newsroom to Classroom, a pilot project in which pairs of NWP teachers from around the country develop resources and curriculum packages that focus on news topics and content from KQED's Low Down blog . In addition, you get student-produced new-media artifacts related to the topics in KQED's Do Now, a current events, Twitter-based program.

Join Matthew Green and Matt Williams of KQED, along with Chris Sloan of the Wasatch Range Writing Project and Kirsten Spall of the Area 3 Writing Project, as they discuss the various dimensions of the initiative, from conception to implementation. We'll also hear a student perspective on this opportunity to weigh in on the issues of our times using digital tools.
