Media Partners

Media organizations and journalists are essential partners in the News Literacy Project’s work to help young people confidently navigate today’s challenging information landscape and become responsible digital citizens.

Connecting Journalist with Educators

Our NLP’s  offers educators a first-hand introduction to news literacy, along with tools and resources they can use in their classrooms and the opportunity to connect directly with journalists in their communities.

 In these day-long professional development sessions, teachers and librarians at middle schools and high schools visit a local news outlet for training with journalists from that newsroom and our staff.
