In the digital age, how do we know what to believe? Not all information is created equal, and the News Literacy Project works to ensure that young people can discern fact from fiction. NLP collaborates with educators and seasoned journalists to deliver its curriculum: in a classroom (unit lasting 3-4 weeks), through a semester-long after-school program, or via a cutting-edge e-learning platform. Journalists from major news organizations (including The Washington Post, NPR, USA Today, and Politico) volunteer their time and expertise, while teachers receive training to integrate news literacy lessons into existing curricula, aligning with Common Core standards and promoting 21st century skills. Last year, 1,333 students at 14 DC-area schools benefitted from NLP’s lessons, learning to analyze nonfiction texts, photos, and videos, while reflecting on topics like the importance of the First Amendment, the watchdog role of the press, and students' roles as both creators and consumers of digital content. An investment here helps build a generation of informed voters, savvy thinkers, and responsible citizens!
