#NewsEngagementDay Activity: Service-Learning

Description: Have students read trending news from various news outlets and select the most valuable news story that is closely related to their service-learning client(s). Have the students share/retweet/regram the news story and tag their clients on social media. Have students include a short description of why they think the story is critical and newsworthy for the clients. Make sure to have the students (and encourage the clients to) include #NewsValue and #NewsEngagementDay when posting.

Idea from: Yi Grace Ji, Virginia Commonwealth University
