In this podcast episode, I interview Clement Townsend about the importance of journalism and multimedia composition in the classroom. Clement Townsend has valuable real-world experience in journalism as well as teaching and mentoring experience at the K-12 level. In this episode, he shares practical insights on how we can integrate journalism into our classroom practice. I’ve written before about how I view journalism as a class of the future and this conversation was a bold reminder to me about how journalism can improve ELA skills while also helping students develop critical soft skills.
