Lesson Plans

We’ve asked teachers from across the nation to share lesson plans related to journalism. Some are journalism teachers, some are not. But all have an interest in good journalism. If you would like to contribute your lesson plans, please contact us.

Teachers whose lesson plans are posted on the site will receive a $35 check from hsj.org.
