Linda Ellerbee: Growing a Nation of Rowdy Citizens

With digital media, 24/7 current-events programming, and daily news broadcasts, kids don’t need help finding out what’s going on in the world. Understanding what they find, however, can be difficult. For 15 years, Linda Ellerbee has written and produced Nickelodeon’s Nick News to inform young people about world events and ease their anxieties about everything from politics and family to school violence and war.

In this interview with Cable in the Classroom Magazine’s Lauren Capolupo, Ellerbee discusses the importance of talking with kids about current events, encouraging opinions, and inspiring action.
