Attention MS/HS ELA, Civics, Social Studies, STEM, Media Literacy educators: check out the News Literacy Project

News lit project

The News Literacy Project, a national, nonpartisan education nonprofit, empowers educators to teach news and media literacy skills that will last a lifetime. NLP provides free programs and resources to help young people become smart, active consumers of news and information, and engaged, informed participants in our democracy.

Checkology Virtual Classroom®: NLP’s flagship program contains engaging cross-curricular lessons aligned to the Common Core literacy standards, the C3 framework and ISTE standards. Laying the foundation for students to think critically, our lessons help educators equip students with the tools to evaluate and interpret information, knowing what to trust, share and act on. In addition, Checkology features a directory of vetted journalists in the Newsroom to Classroom program who can speak with students virtually or in person. And its Check Center helps to build the habits of mind necessary to debunk misinformation while also providing tips for online searches.
