After an intense trip, the tired young reporters come home with their notebooks (or phones) full of interesting facts and stories. Now it’s time for them to share their thoughts and experiences with others.
The material created by the students can be in different forms, for example:
• a magazine, print or online, where the students' pieces of work can be combined and photocopied.
• On a website or a blog, a Facebook page or a series of Tweets.
• A performance where the children act out interviews with the Child Rights Heroes and the children on mock-TV or radio programmes, or in a Youtube video.
• News headlines that summarise important elements of the stories.
• Posters about the Child Rights Heroes and their work.
Open the doors to the outside world!
If the students feel that they want to present what they’ve learned for a wider audience, why not invite people to a presentation? The programme could consist of skits, speeches and articles read aloud. That way, other people who didn't participate in the journey can be informed - other students and teachers, family members, friends and the local media.
Write a speech
Have the students express their own demands for respect for the rights of the child. How do they tell their parents, their teachers, politicians, journalists and other adults, that the rights of the child are not respected where they live, in their country or the world? How do they think things should be? Ask the students to write speeches where they demand respect for the rights of the child.
Let the students decide what they want to communicate. Their strength, courage, knowledge and wisdom are what should be brought to light
Follow-up and evaluation
It’s important that the students feel involved in the evaluation of their work and of the 'reporter journey' project. This evaluation can be conducted in different ways. Download an example below, however, you may well have your own preferred methods.
