dynamic classroom content development

The journalists and former teachers who produce the NewsHour Extra Web site
, which is associated with PBS's "The NewsHour With Jim Lehrer," are among
the most conspicuous practitioners of a new hybrid online genre ? part daily
journalism, part education ? that has taken shape during the war. They
produce daily online news stories and lesson plans intended to help teachers
respond intelligently to student demands for classroom discussion of what is
going on in Iraq.
