Preparing students to navigate the landscape of news media is perhaps the most urgent challenge for educators today. From satire and hoaxes to partisan rumors and outright disinformation, today’s information landscape is the most challenging and complex in human history. News literacy—the skills for interpreting and critically analyzing news and information—is nothing less than fundamental to the future success of students and the world they’re responsible for shaping.

In this edWebinar, Peter Adams, Senior Vice President of Education at the News Literacy Project, provides an overview of the field of news literacy, including the most current trends and research, and offers concrete tools and strategies for addressing these skills in the classroom.

Join us to learn ways to prepare your students with the critical skills needed for news literacy. This session is designed for middle and high school teachers, librarians, and tech coordinators. There will be time to get your questions answered after Peter’s presentation.
