Teaching Millennials to Engage THE Environment Instead of Their Environment: A Pedagogical Analysis
Stevens, J. Richard; Crow, Deserai Anderson
Applied Environmental Education and Communication, v15 n1 p18-29 2016
This article examines the difficulty in teaching contemporary students of journalism (those in the much-discussed Millennial Generation) to report on complex topics like science and the environment. After examining contemporary literature, the authors subjected 120 undergraduate students to a strategy that combined visual representations of abstract concepts, media texts, and experiential peer interactions. The results indicate positive outcomes on comprehension and demonstrations of critical analysis from this pedagogical approach.
