Connect with NewsDepth
Hey teachers, there are tons of ways to connect with NewsDepth beyond watching the weekly broadcast. Here are seven ways to engage with us:
1. Sign up for the NewsDepth e-newsletter, get added to our classroom map, and get a yearly NewsDepth poster!
Sign up to receive updates on what is new and how you can use NewsDepth in your classroom. We’ll remind you about upcoming breaks and fill you in on behind the scenes changes to the show. Plus we'll let you know how you can influence changes to the program.
By signing up for the newsletter, you will also be added to our classroom map and be mailed a yearly NewsCat poster! The map helps NewsDepth understand our viewership and also is used for showing the program’s widespread use to funders.
*Be sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book so our e-newsletters don't end up in your junk mail!
2. Join the teacher Facebook group.
Join NewsDepth’s Teacher Lounge Facebook Group to talk about how you use NewsDepth with other teachers, give your suggestions on stories to the producer and find out early what stories will be featured in the upcoming episode.
3. Submit your student for our A Plus segment.
4. Tour the Idea Center.
Are you close to the Cleveland area? Feel free to call or email Amiee Collier (216-916-6424) to discuss a possible tour of the studio and building where NewsDepth and ideastream’s other programs are produced for your class, along with a discussion about careers in media. Tours are limited to 30 students per visit and last between 1 to 2 hours. The NewsDepth team is only able to accommodate two tours per month - so get your requests in as soon as you can!
5. Request a visit from the NewsDepth team.
We love getting to meet our viewers in person! To request a visit from the NewsDepth team call or email Amiee Collier (216-916-6424). Unfortunately, we are only able to accommodate a handful of school visits per season.
6. Request a Zoom session with the NewsDepth team.
We know not everyone can make the trip to Cleveland and we are limited in our ability to visit schools. That’s where virtual visits come into play – to schedule a 20 minute video conference session with your class and the NewsDepth team, call or email Amiee Collier (216-916-6424).
7. Find NewsDepth elsewhere online.
