Share A Story is a curriculum and a digital learning platform where journalism students learn to build media literacy skills and an intentional news consumption habit.
The curriculum, targeted at college-level journalism classrooms, aims to help students navigate the overabundance of information today. It prompts them to reflect on the news value of every story they encounter, for themselves and for their communities. Over the course of 100 days, students share a story with their classmates, once a day every day, through an online learning platform. They simultaneously participate in a series of synchronized online and in-class exercises that focus on media literacy skills. The goal is to transform the students’ every day news consumption into something more collaborative and intentional, in the form of a community-based news exchange.
The project is created in collaboration with and initiated by Blake Eskin, professor in Journalism+Design at the Eugene Lang College of the New School.
