NewsHour Extra: Watching the Clock

Sometimes public broadcasting becomes a whipping post for those who think limiting it will save money. This great lesson plan helps students understand how and why public broadcasting, whether PBS or NPR, is able to offer much more in-depth reporting that is important to coverage of national and local events. Students examine the time constraints on commercial media, both national and local, and how it limits the depth of reporting. Several activities are suggested. This lesson supports the national standards for both viewing strategies for media, and the understanding of the production elements involved in specific media.
