Unformatted Document Text:  Teaching Millennials to Engage THE Environment instead of THEIR Environment: A Pedagogical Analysis Paper submitted for peer review for the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication Convention, St. Louis, (August 10-13, 2011). Abstract This paper examines the difficulty in teaching contemporary students of journalism (those in the much-discussed Millennial Generation) to report on complex topics like science and the environment. After examining contemporary literature, the authors subjected 120 undergraduate students to a strategy that combined visual representations of abstract concepts, media texts, and experiential peer interactions. The results indicate positive outcomes on comprehension and demonstrations of critical analysis from this pedagogical approach.
