Media Literacy with Cross-Curricular Resources

September 16
12:15 pm - 1:05 pm
Media Literacy
Library and Media Specialists, Teachers

As a trailblazer supporting media literacy as a critical and necessary requirement for high school students, Illinois encourages students to develop their research skills to discern fact from fiction and understand media and advertising concepts to become good digital citizens. Newsela’s curated collections of content support these efforts in a cross-curricular manner, supporting teachers to guide students in becoming informed citizens, critical thinkers and a force for good.

During the sessions, you’ll hear from Illinois instructional coaches on how and where they include Media Literacy in their curriculum. They will also share how Newsela is being used to promote media literacy and help students make informed decisions.
