Welcome to The Center for Just Journalism's Curriculum Resource Library.
The library is a resource for journalism educators who are teaching the next generation of reporters and editors. It offers dozens of readings, discussion questions, teaching ideas, and lesson plans designed to foster a new approach to public safety reporting. One that is rooted in fact and lacking in sensationalism. The resources are built around four major themes: sourcing, story selection, stylistic choices, and verification. You can explore each theme or search for specific topics (i.e. crime statistics, mugshots, police sources) or skills (i.e. pitching, diversifying sources).
