Garage Gazette (Series)

Garage Gazette presented the five core strands of the language arts curriculum--writing, reading, speaking, listening and viewing --in an entertaining format. The running story-line recorded the struggles of four children who, unable to obtain coverage of their winning soccer team from the local press, resolved to publish their own newspaper. In five episodes, the four grade 6 youngsters discovered how a newspaper is organized. In the process of reporting the soccer championship games an alleged act of vandalism is exposed. Tension is built up around the whole process of discovering how hard news is reported, the importance of accuracy, the social responsibility of the journalist, and the art of interviewing.
