News in Review is a subscription series of educational programs produced by CBC News and hosted by CBC journalist Michael Serapio.
This is teaching media literacy at its best. You do a fabulous job of putting together a related-information package and discussion questions. Your initial article serves to focus the students onto the video as they view it for the first time. Then the follow-up articles help to develop the depth of the issue.” (Helen A., River East Transcona School Division)
