Nellie Bly and Investigative Journalism for Kids

Mighty Muckrakers from the Golden Age to Today, With 21 Activities

Nellie Bly and Investigative Journalism for Kids brings to light the evolving world of American journalism, from the late 1800s to today! Focusing on the audacious investigative reporter Nellie Bly, the book presents journalism in a fun, inventive, and exciting way. Budding reporters learn how Bly, who so desired to work in the male-dominated world of reporting, willingly feigned her own insanity to be committed to a mental asylum so she could go undercover and write about it.

In this book from the For Kids series, young readers will learn about Bly and four other famous American muckrakers — Jacob Riis, Ida Tarbell, Ida B. Wells, and Upton Sinclair — as well as a few modern investigative journalists. Along the way, you'll try a variety of activities that teach journalism basics, from making a reporter's notebook to conducting an interview to writing their own letter to the editor. It's sure to leave her imagining how she could write the front-page news of the future!
