Newsela - ICivics & Newsela: News & Media Literacy Today-Keys to Authentic Civic Engagement

Racial Injustice. Protests for Change. Living through a Global Pandemic. Bot Posts. Misleading Videos. Fake News. Young people become journalists every day in the ways that they share news or channel social media for a cause. Now, more than ever, news and media literacy are critical to the development of informed, engaged civic participants who can enact lasting change. Join iCivics and Newsela to explore how you can help your students become discerning consumers- and producers-of media in a time when it is needed most! During this 50-minute session, you will gain knowledge on how you can approach this important work in the classroom (virtual or face to face) for students at all grade levels!
