Election 2020: Making Audio & Video Commentaries to Amplify Youth Voice

During this extraordinary time in our history, you can empower students to make their voices heard. Help students analyze important issues, create media to share their views and connect with peers across the nation through KQED’s Youth Media Challenge: Let’s Talk About Election 2020. In Part 1 of this workshop for secondary educators of all subjects, we'll explore into what makes a strong civic commentary and equip you to write a compelling audio or video script. In Part 2, we'll get hands-on. Each participant will create his/her own short audio or video commentary. You'll leave with a full slate of free resources for each step of the Election 2020 challenge and your own example commentary to share with students. You'll also be connected to KQED's education experts for follow-up questions after our time together. Join KQED for a workshop dedicated to amplifying the voices of young people as they tackle issues of importance to themselves and the future of our nation. This workshop is open to middle and high school educators.
