Image of Year 9 students learn about media bias with The Guardian Foundation

Yesterday, students in 9X1 took part in the Media Literacy Ambassador Training delivered by The Guardian Foundation. As part of the training, our students were taught about media bias/manipulation and the prevalence of 'fake news' in the press. We were impressed that The Guardian representatives even acknowledged some of their own newspaper's misleading headlines.  This was a really worthwhile activity for our students, and those involved responded extremely positively.  9X1, as ambassadors, will now deliver workshop sessions on media bias to their peers.  Thank you to Mrs Karolia for organising the opportunity and Mrs Rashid for facilitating the workshop and leading the peer training. The Guardian will also be presenting at our English Hub meeting on 1st February. They will be providing some CPD on news reporting and opinion writing.
