KELOLAND News Anchors Teach Eighth Graders About Journalism

KELOLAND News Anchors Teach Eighth Graders About Journalism

Hundreds of Language Arts students at Memorial Middle School got a visit from KELOLAND News anchors Friday.

"It gives me a better way of how I can change perspectives and get people's attention," Emma Volk said.

The Eighth grade students are preparing to put together their own newscasts, but before they dig deep into television journalism, they are getting a taste of what it's really like.

From learning about story development, interviewing sources and on-air presentation, these students say the real-world experience changed their perception of television journalism.

"I thought it was really interesting about how you had to put your own opinion aside when you are reporting a story," Shannon Hofer-Pottala said. "So even if you don't agree with it, you have to say both sides."

"I didn't realize that you guys edited it," Carter Adds said. "I thought that you just filmed it and had cameramen that did all the work for you."

"I really learned the difference between, I always thought news was you just read the teleprompter but it's not that. You have to really know the facts and you have to learn what's really going around you," Volk said.

Meteorologist Grant Smith and KELOLAND's Hailey Higgins also helped with the presentations.
