A best-of-the-best collection of resources for teaching and learning about news literacy

News literacy is a subset of media literacy focused on helping international journal people process and understand news media messages, to locate more factual and credible information, and to think critically about what counts as news. News literacy is also about recognizing that quality, credible, independent news and journalism are critical components of any free and democratic society. News and politics have been reshaped by social media and 24-hours news entertainment. As a result, there’s a lot of crossover between what we think of as news literacy, media literacy, and digital citizenship.
