Editor’s note: Students in Matt Presser’s journalism class at New Haven’s High School in the Community worked with Register Community Engagement Editor Shahid Abdul-Karim to help hone their reporting skills. The students were publishing their work at the New Haven Pulse, an online news site. The class discussed the way teenagers are represented in the media and that teens feel misunderstood. Their stories address that belief and aim to help adults and the world understand who they are and challenges they face. They were tasked with interviewing adult experts, teenage peers, and researching relevant statistics.
