Beyond The Classroom
Give Facts a Fighting Chance: A Global Playbook for Teaching News Literacy is NLP’s free, comprehensive resource for organizations worldwide as they develop or expand locally relevant programs to combat the scourge of misinformation.
The Global Playbook provides a road map for developing a news literacy education curriculum, including advice on the logistics of establishing a program, ideas for building engaging and culturally relevant lessons, and the importance of assessing results.
It offers a brief history of misinformation, disinformation and “fake news,” using real-world examples, and discusses the standards of quality journalism and the vital role of the press in a free society. It also includes a collection of best practices in news literacy education, along with a listing of geographically relevant news literacy resources.
It was funded by the Facebook Journalism Project.
