News Literacy Games, Tools, and Lessons
Our kids and students are inheriting a world where trustworthy info can be tough to find. From cable news to social media to the gutting of local news sources and in-depth reporting, it can be tough to get a real handle on current events. While news literacy, or information literacy, has been kicking around schools for a long time, the entire discipline is due for a shakeup that's better tuned to how news and info gets made and manipulated now.
To help, we've curated some of the best resources for teaching a new kind of news literacy. These resources help students seek out and evaluate the credibility of sources, fact-check in a way suited to the web, understand and challenge bias, and battle misinformation and disinformation. There's everything from lessons and curricula to interactive games and tools.
