Digital Resource Center for News Literacy - from Stony Brook University
Stony Brook University's School of Journalism has some great free resources for teachers in the Digital Resource Center around the topic of News Literacy.
There is a "Let's Get Started" area with shared activity/lesson ideas that can be used.
There are also 14 lesson plans that can be used within a course or integrated into your own curriculum -
"The full News Literacy course, developed at Stony Brook University, organizes the material into 8 concepts that are spread amongst our 14 week course that take students from the first information revolution of Johannes Gutenberg's printing press to the Digital Age of Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook. Each lesson stands alone or can easily be integrated into your program.
Below, find a summary of each of those lessons, and a link to the most updated version of the teaching materials for each from our professors at Stony Brook University. Each of the following Course Packs include PowerPoint presentations, associated media, lecture notes, and recitation materials."
