Issue of the Week

Hi Everyone,

For those regular readers, I have set up another blog at – the purpose of which is to allow students from different schools, grades, provinces, and countries to start talking about big ideas and challenges! Hope you can join us.

Freedom Riders & Democracy Now

Democracy Now is a Radio station out of the United States. Have a look at the website and try and determine what its purpose is. Look at the video below that relates directly to our current discussions on civil rights. What perspective is taken? What does this say about media biases in the United States? What could Democracy Now be a reaction to?

You can listen to Democracy Now on their website, or CKUW (University of Winnipeg) also airs it daily.
