Unit 1: Foundations of Journalism

This unit will cover the First Amendment to the Constitution and the impact of bias in the media. As well, students will research the historical development of journalism through its technology, production, laws, people and types. The lesson plans double as action plans for students to follow in class or online. 

The Lesson Guide was created and developed by Jennifer Kehoe, Ph.D.
