Student Media as the Voice of Youth and Studentship in the World

Student Media as the Voice of Youth and Studentship in the World

 

Media is regarded as one of the most important aspects of student culture in general. Students need someone to hear them; hence, they need to make something for they could be heard. The only solution is the creation of student newspapers, radio stations and videos.

Media, as the part of student culture plays an important role for developing and shaping student culture, as it is not only a way of making messages, but also a way of uniting students, and keeping them aware on the matters of events in the student community. Some radio stations offer educational programs for the students of a campus, the others are an alternative to commercial radio. Anyway, student media, independently on the origin, is the unique tendency, aimed at making others hear what students tell.

Importance of Student Media

In fact, some student radios are broadcasted with low-power equipment, and often do not cover even the whole territory of the city where they are located. Nevertheless, the importance of any radio station can not be exaggerated, as they are aimed at helping students in overcoming their difficulties and gaps in information. These could be regarded as the students’ voice for attracting attention of other communities towards problems associated with numerous aspects, such as:

Lack of equipment

Corruption

Problems in campuses

Lobbying of student’s interests in government

Civil position of students in various aspects

Opportunities, which are open due to activity of student media, make students believe that they are the reliable and powerful social stratum, as they have a possibility to make a loud declaration on any aspect in student, educational or civil spheres. Students are free to share the information which they posses, and be sure that they will be heard. This unites the student community, and makes others take into consideration the opinion of the student community.

Era Newspapers, Classic Novels and Student Literary Enrichment

Era Newspapers, Classic Novels and Student Literary Enrichment

Era Newspapers, Classic Novels and Student Literary Enrichment

The use of era newspapers, i.e., mainly front-pages and reproductions, in social studies core curriculums is a widely accepted teaching aid that enable students’ to comprehend the actual event(s) described in history and other social studies textbooks. But a correlated use, very often ignored, occurs with the employment of era newspapers with the Classic Novels read in English, AP or American /European Literature courses in high school and college classrooms nationally. Historical newspapers can be specifically selected to matrix with the events described, era fashion, and historical personalities for all the major 20th Century novels.

Historical newspapers enhance a students’ understanding of the historical perspective of the author; who typically assumes the reader has a ‘common’ knowledge of the time period. The very select list of standard novels enhanced by reading historical newspapers include: U. Sinclair’s The Jungle, E. Wharton’s The House of Mirth, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Sun Also Rises and/or The Great Gatsby, J. Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath, J. D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye, J. Heller’s Catch-22, along with Erich Maria Remarque’s All Quiet on the Western Front, and Otto Frank’s Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl. With day to day front-page headlines such as: 150,00 Reported Killed In The Battle Of The Aisne [Taunton Daily Gazette – WWI], Yanks Repulse Hun Raid Near Marne [Grand Forks Herald – WWI], Fanatic Battle Rages in Cassino Ruins [St. Louis Globe-Democrat – WWII Italy], Prohibition and World Court Figures as Nine States Vote [The Dallas Morning News – The Roaring Twenties], Stocks Cast Overboard in 16,000,000 Share Day [Buffalo Evening News – The Depression], Lindbergh Far Beyond Newfoundland [The World (New York City) – The Roaring Twenties],  and Roosevelt Extends Bank Holiday [The Evening Republican – The Depression] are a very select sample of thousands of possibilities.

Era reproduction newspapers provide a student with a semblance of the same news that inspired the author, helped them form a thematic perspective or cause deeper insights. Articles covering the horrors of war, the divisions of class within American society, the economic and human chaos of the Depression, and the cost of living visualized through full-page fashion, car, and grocery advertisements help a student gain a broader familiarity with the day to day life of the novels’ era. If historical newspapers, were used much like mathematical axioms, they could be used as ‘proofs’ for literary events, described horrors, odd personalities, or national opinion(s) expressed in the literary work. The use of both rural and metropolitan front-pages provide a variety of regional cultures, political party ‘opinions’, and ‘a snapshot in time’ reality a student could read about in the very next chapter. Classroom poster sets based on events, descriptions, themes, or as an introduction to each chapter would offer a sense of ‘concrete’ authenticity equal to this XYZ Generations’ Internet, cellular and ‘My Space’ reality. Co-curricula lesson planning using reproduction newspapers offer obvious academic interconnections between Journalism and history, Poetry and Current Events, or an era English/Literature novel and corresponding era history course. Era newspapers are considered as primary source documents and are about as painless a set of original source documents your students will ever be ‘forced’ to read. Your thoughts, feedback and comments are very welcome.
