Did you know?

The News Literacy Project developed the Framework for Teaching News Literacy, which includes news literacy standards, essential questions and knowledge/skills objectives, along with suggested performance tasks and learning activities. Our framework can be used for integrating news literacy into existing curriculum or as the basis for creating stand-alone courses or units.

“I love the ability to choose the topics and sequence that best align with the standards I am teaching. The quality of the content is top notch and students are always engaged in the NLP lessons.”

 Kim Gugino, teacher-librarian, 6-12 media and technology
