Journalism class, anyone?

Have kids at home in need of a lesson or two? Chicago Public Square will try something new Friday: A live online journalism class at 2 p.m. Central time.

Square founder Charlie Meyerson—an adjunct Roosevelt University journalism prof who’s also taught at Northwestern and Columbia College; and who’s lectured at several high school and college journalism conferences—will take questions from kids of all ages about the news business via a Google Hangouts video chat.

Want in? By noon Central, send students’ names, school grade, email address and at least one question to and you’ll get a link to click just before the session begins.

We’ll limit this class to 25 participants, but if demand exceeds that, more to come.
