Law Review

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

How can your journalism class ensure they use social media responsibly and legally? The sixth lesson in a 16-part Social Media Toolbox series asks pupils to dig deep into the legal aspects of social media use by school publications. After learning the laws, groups engage in role-play activities to demonstrate ways news outlets sometimes break Internet laws.
