Register here: https://newslitcampgreatlakes.sched.com/
This is a unique, virtual (and FREE!) experience for educators across the Great Lakes region. Educators in Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa are encouraged to attend.
NewsLitCamp is an immersive, free professional learning experience primarily for middle and high school educators. It features topical sessions (selected with input from participants) led by journalists and news literacy experts, designed to develop expertise in news literacy education, share specialized teaching resources and provide a behind-the-scenes view of the news reporting process.
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 a middle or high school teacher, librarian, or other educator, or you know one who might be interested, please register and tell your colleagues about NewsLitCamp.
