Bio


The occasion of the new film "Good Night and Good Luck" is a good time for students to study this period in American History and to learn more about
broadcast journalism.

Many state's Social Studies teaching standards make reference to 
radio and television broadcasting and its role in American History.

Recommended Resource: RTNDA lesson plans related to the film

Using the table of contents on the left, teachers can access a number of
resources.

Teachers may wish to review these first:
- the language of film
- media literacy's core concepts
- critical thinking/viewing questions

I welcome comments about this site and its usefulness.
