During this NewsLitCamp, you can expect to hear firsthand from journalists from the Detroit Free Press and the Michigan Advance, who will share their insider expertise on the behind-the-scenes workings of a modern newsroom.

As you may know, NewsLitCamp is a unique opportunity for 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.

Listen to what educators and journalists who have participated in NewsLitCamp have to say in this engaging and brief video.

All Detroit Public School educators, including librarians and library media specialists, are encouraged to register for this special event, regardless of subject area or grade level.

We hope you can join us for this interactive half-day of news literacy programming!

This event is generously sponsored by the Knight Foundation.
