Students from the University of Oklahoma Gaylord College of Journalism met Sunday night to discuss their coverage of the Oklahoma teacher walkout.
It's all part of the [UNFILTERED] community journalism project, an effort between News 9 and Mike Boettcher, a veteran journalist and visiting professor at the University of Oklahoma.
News 9 will be covering the walkout all day Monday, starting with News 9 In The Morning at 4 a.m. There will be numerous Facebook Lives on the News 9 Facebook page.
Watch the event below, and take a second to like the OUCovers18 Unfiltered Facebook page. Much of the students' work will be featured in the [UNFILTERED] section of News9.com and the KWTV Facebook page, but the OU Facebook page will also have lots of coverage of this teacher walkout.
[UNFILTERED] is a partnership between News 9 and Mike Boettcher, a veteran journalist, News 9 alum and visiting professor at the University of Oklahoma. The goal of [UNFILTERED] is to provide the most thorough coverage possible of stories that matter to Oklahomans. We believe that a transparent, unfiltered approach to community journalism will embody the new era of digital storytelling.
