News Literacy in a Digital Age: A Community Conversation

Event Fee:
$0.00

This community event will explore these questions in an interactive presentation.  From understanding how implicit biases shape our understanding of the world to knowing how to find reliable information, we will explore ways of making informed decisions and becoming effective active participants in today’s complex information landscape.

Some of the activities will tap resources in Facing Ferguson: News Literacy in a Digital Age, created by Facing History and Ourselves in partnership with The News Literacy Project.  Using the lessons learned from the 2014 fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and the protests that followed, we created a case study for middle and high school teachers that encourages students to develop news literacy skills.
