CBC Kids News in the Classroom Registration
Whether you’re teaching in a school or offering virtual learning, bring CBC Kids News to your classroom and get a behind-the-scenes perspective on how news is produced!
Connecting with a CBC Kids News producer via your preferred video communication platform, classes will learn the step-by-step process of how a news story is produced, including picking a topic, the interview process, selecting the subject, and more. This session is ideal for kids aged 9 to 13. (Some topics may not be suitable for students in Grade 5 or under.) To participate, you must have access to Google Meet, Microsoft Teams or Zoom. To ensure the safety and privacy of all students, you will be asked to invite the CBC Kids News producer into your video call.
What you can expect from your CBC Kids News in the Classroom hangout:
- Duration: 45 minutes
- To prepare, your classroom will be e-mailed a CBC Kids News Toolkit.
- Using a news story currently in production, a CBC Kids News producer will take the class through the steps required to produce that story, step-by-step. A finished news piece is reviewed at the end.
- The class and teacher are encouraged to ask questions throughout the session.
