Teaching High School Journalism In The ‘Fake News’ Era

I'm honored to share my recent story for the HuffPost, which you can access by clicking here

I've included the first few paragraphs below:

As a high school history and government teacher, I do my best to avoid feeding into partisan humor or offering unsolicited remarks about what politicians say and do. I want students to focus on the learning process, not on what I believe ― though, with this administration, I have grown more open to the idea of sharing my views when asked.

When it comes to teaching journalism and advising the student news site The Gator, however, I have no qualms about expressing my disappointment in President Donald Trump’s treatment of the Fourth Estate, which includes our nation’s most venerable newsrooms.
