Media and Mass Communication

At a workshop held on December 9, 2019 in the Serbian language and literature class, the second grade students discussed the situation in Serbian media today and tried to answer the following questions: What is objective journalism?  How should we fight yellow journalism? How not to allow fake news to become sensations?

The students had a task to  make up fake news on a given topic as soon as possible, to report from an assembly, a sporting event, to create a sensational headline in political or some other newspapers etc.In the end, during the most interesting part of the class, students interviewed each other. They took on the roles of a journalist, a celebrity, an actor, a professor, a writer, a librarian, a surgeon, a forester, a director of a company or a translator. The students performed great in the given roles and made this class extremely successful.
