Pressing Issues Photography Project Idea
Written by Margaret Holborn, this Media Studies based photography project encourages pupils to take photographs that reflect news issues both in their school (and immediate local context) and nationally and to use these to produce a newspaper front page.
The following are updated links to the Pressing Issues publication:

The Guardian's Newsroom is now the Guardian's Education Centre.
This project idea is taken from The Photographers' Gallery education publication Pressing Issues: Media-based Photography Projects in Secondary Schools.
