Webinar: Introducing Camp Fact-Check

Wednesday, May 29, 2024
5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT

In this free, 30-minute webinar designed for educators teaching summer school or planning for next school year, learn about our Camp Fact-Check kit – which builds valuable fact-checking skills that students in grades 6-12 can apply across subjects. You’ll come away with a better understanding of lessons in the Checkology®️ virtual classroom, as well as other free classroom resources, including infographics, posters and even TikToks to help guide your teaching of news literacy concepts.

You’ll learn how to develop and boost students’ abilities in areas such as:

  • Assessing the credibility of sources and claims.
  • Googling “like a pro.”
  • Debunking rumors and conspiratorial thinking.

NLP educator-experts Erin Olson and Shaelynn Farnsworth will lead this 30-minute session.

This webinar will be of interest to middle and high school teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
