Envisioning Scientifically Literate Students Fifteen Years after Graduation: The Promise of Educative Science Journalism

Lead Organization(s): 
Short Description: 
The “Science Literacy Through Science Journalism” (SciJourn) project explores how the practices of good science journalism can inform high school science education. As high school students report science news, they learn to gather and contextualize information and bring critical eyes to that which they read and write. This effort can be contrasted to the goal of making every student a “little scientist.”
