Jewellery Quarter Academy is an active participant in BBC School Report 2018. We are taking this opportunity to showcase the work that our students are doing to remember the Holocaust and the performance art they are creating to be shown in the National Holocaust Memorial when it opens in 2021.
Students started their preparatory sessions by discussing what makes for an authentic news story, what the key features are of a well researched news item and how the story can be delivered to persuade an audience. They then studied some famous news story case studies, which could be considered fake or poorly sourced/researched and looked at the deliver, intention and impact of these stories. Engagement was good and the debate was lively.
