9:00 AM – 3:00 PM CST


Illinois educators, this one’s for you!

Join us on Friday, March 18, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. CT for NewsLitCamp® Illinois, in partnership with the Chicago Sun-Times and sponsored by The Robert F. McCormick Foundation.

As you may know, NewsLitCamp is a unique opportunity for middle and high school teachers, librarians and other educators across all subjects to connect directly with journalists and hone their ability to teach students how to sort fact from fiction. (And by the way, it’s FREE!)

You’ll leave NewsLitCamp with new ideas, skills and resources to help your students navigate today’s complex and challenging information landscape and demystify what distinguishes quality journalism from rumors, hoaxes and other types of misinformation.

If you are an educator based in Illinois, or you know of one who might be interested, we’d love for you to join us. Register today.
