This requires communication (to translate sometimes difficult subjects in ways that even elementary age audiences will understand), critical thinking (to determine what should and should not be covered), and knowledge (of effective video storytelling techniques). 5. Collaborate effectively with others. This requires communication (with colleagues all topics and schedules) and ethics (to be reliable team members who are just as responsible to each other as to themselves). 6. Reflect the diversity of the community you report on. This requires ethics (students must ensure that their work is diverse and inclusive) and critical thinking (students must be aware of when their work does not reflect the diversity of the population they serve).
