The aim is to provide students with an absorbing way of learning about suicide reporting that is based on what you already do with them – storytelling.
That means you can build in teaching and learning about suicide reporting into practical journalism modules like news, features, magazine journalism, mobile journalism, data journalism, podcasting, video journalism, broadcast journalism, sports journalism and other specialisms; news days, and breaking news scenarios. You could also use parts of our lessons in theoretical classes, e.g. journalism ethics, news theory, public affairs, and law.
You can choose to use these lesson plans individually, in part, or combine several together for a 1-2 hour session.
In these lessons our approach with students is:
• you lead, we guide
• interactive and collaborative
• learn as you go, find out and feed back
