FOIA Lesson Plan for High School Teachers

May 14, 2010


This lesson plan could be part of the weeklong journalism instruction in 10th- and 11th-grade English classes. This plan is designed for schools that do not have a specific journalism program or where the student newspaper is not a class but more of an after-school club. In such schools, journalism instruction (First Amendment rights, news and feature writing and reporting, etc.) is incorporated into a weeklong lesson in certain English courses.
