[custom_font font_size=”14″ line_height=”26″ font_style=”normal” text_align=”left” font_weight=”400″ text_decoration=”none” text_shadow=”no” color=”#212121″]

JLI identifies schools that are ripe for transformation and works with their teachers, administrators, and community members to initiate strategies for change. Or, they find us! Once relationships are in place, educators join a paid fellowship program with self-guided modules that train teachers in using the journalistic learning method and use our Effective Communicators curriculum in their classroom. The 45-day standards-aligned course can be taught inside existing English Language Arts or as a stand-alone elective. Through this team-teaching approach, our program facilitates the advancement of student learning and achievement.

[custom_font font_size=”14″ line_height=”26″ font_style=”normal” text_align=”left” font_weight=”400″ text_decoration=”none” text_shadow=”no” color=”#212121″]The Student Voice is a student-run professional development program for high school students focused on providing practical, accessible journalism advising. University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication undergraduates produce a variety of educational written, video and audio content to be utilized by younger students as tools for journalism and communications skill-building. Our “near-peer” mentors provide honest tips on navigating the modern journalism industry by sharing their personal experiences and by interviewing industry professionals about theirs. With students’ consent, we publish selected content in The Student Voice and work to have it republished by mainstream media organizations. Additionally, we acknowledge excellent student work in our annual Student Voice Awards competition.[/custom_font]

Educators generally agree on the importance of cultivating students’ critical thinking skills, but for many the term remains elusive. Viewed through a critical lens, information intake still largely remains a passive process. JLI cultivates a deeper level of student engagement that we call informed thinking; one that our research indicates can better prepare young people to effectively navigate a more complex and nuanced world. Informed thinkers are more than savvy consumers. They become effective problem solvers, emerge as content creators, and learn to advocate for public good in their communities.
