We’re always working on something new and relevant for our teachers. Check out the latest for the coming school year:

  • Teaching media literacy this fall? Then look no further. Check out the​ “​News Literacy Unit​” ​ to help students acquire the skills necessary for recognizing bias, misinformation, opinion, and more!

  • This October we're releasing a brand new game on news literacy just in time for Media Literacy Week and the Election. Your students will analyze a variety of sources of information to determine what's journalism, what's viral deception, and what lives in that gray space in the middle.
