Lunch and Learn: News Literacy for All
Join us on Oct. 8 for a Lunch and Learn with Peter Adams, NLP’s senior vice president of education.
Register now on Zoom to attend.
Peter will explore recent trends in viral misinformation and how to spot them. He will introduce resources for debunking falsehoods and strategies for talking with friends and family members who share them online.
Misinformation and a lack of news literacy in the United States have created a crisis — an existential threat to our democracy.
That is why the News Literacy Project is thrilled to be expanding our commitment to news literacy education beyond the classroom! This fall, NLP unveiled free tools and resources that are accessible to all, including a customized version of our signature e-learning platform, Checkology®. All of these resources will help the public learn how to identify credible information, seek out reliable sources, understand both media bias as well as their own, and apply critical thinking skills to differentiate fact-based content from falsehoods.
