Real Students Host Unscripted Conversations
The Group Chat is a miniseries where middle and high school students share their thoughts on current events and issues that affect students everywhere. The premiere season was developed by Amelia, Arise, Bri, Calli, Cedar, Gabe, and Yash – all teenagers and all former hosts of the Michigan Learning Channel’s tween show Extra Credit. This group of students represents Farmington Hills, Cheboygan, Detroit, and Kalamazoo areas. The first season includes the following episodes: Lessons from Miss Anita; Don’t Flush That!; We’re All Beautiful; Sextortion; and Caleb’s Kids & Mental Health Awareness. Each episode includes practical advice and/or strategies that other teen viewers can use.
