Free KS4 presentation on producing the news!

Make sure your KS4 citizenship students understand how the news is produced with our free presentation!

Start your students off thinking about the people involved in news production with an interactive activity on job roles. Discussion questions encourage your class to think about the circumstances under which executive editors may choose to influence the portrayal of a news story.

The presentation also explains what is meant by ‘freedom of the press’. Students are encouraged to look at the local or national news and identify examples of persuasive and non-factual language. This leads on to a discussion of how the press informs and influences us, and the measures in place to stop this power being abused.
