Facing Ferguson: News Literacy in a Digital Age

The shooting of Michael Brown and the protests that followed became a flashpoint for the discussion about race, policing, and justice. Using the information aftermath of Ferguson and a new unit co-created by Facing History and Ourselves and the News Literacy Project, this webinar, as a part of NAMLE's Media Literacy Week, will introduce Facing Ferguson: News Literacy in a Digital Age. The resource examines how implicit biases shape our understanding of the world, and how news literacy skills and concepts can help students find reliable information to make decisions, take action, and become effective civic participants in today’s complex information landscape.

The webinar is 4:00-5:00pm CST.
