Lets work together to weed out mis and dis information
The News Literacy Project is a national education offering nonpartisan, independent programs that teach students how to know what to trust in the digital age.
The News Literacy Project, empowers educators to teach students the skills they need to become smart, active consumers of news and information and engaged, informed participants in our democracy.
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.
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.
For our Newsroom to Classroom program, we partner with journalists who can help reinforce the news literacy lessons These journalists either visit schools and organise face to face lessons or run webinars. To that end, The News Literacy Project has developed a set of guidelines to ensure volunteers meet our standards.
Leveraging our IT platform working with schools to organise periodic lessons to uncover facts from fictions especially during national issues.
