NLP’s scope and initiatives featured in The Washington Post’s education blog

Media Coverage

“If you don’t know what the News Literacy Project is and does, it’s time you do.”

That’s how Valerie Strauss, who writes The Washington Post’s education blog, Answer Sheet, starts today’s post about NLP’s scope, reach and initiatives. “Fighting the misinformation pandemic: Here’s help teaching students to distinguish real news from what’s fake” introduces readers to what we do and describes NLP resources that can help them become more news-literate.

Answer Sheet will be featuring items from every issue of The Sift®, our newsletter for educators (published weekly on Mondays, with the exception of federal holidays and Christmas, spring and summer vacation periods), through the end of the school year.
