Session 1: News Literacy Workshop: How to Evaluate Any News Content for Reliability and Bias
Rave Review of Vanessa Otero’s Webinars: “I’ve been in journalism and communications as well as teaching for some years and have never encountered such an excellent teaching resource and workshop delivery. Excellent in every way.”—Rita E. Creane, Writer-Educator
Modern news literacy presents a unique challenge. Because there are so many news sources out there, true news literacy requires learning skills to evaluate any piece of content, especially if the source is unfamiliar. Today’s news consumers encounter news content everywhere on social media and the Internet generally. It is insufficient to use old shortcuts or simple tips. In this session, we cover step-by-step methods that allow readers to evaluate any news content for reliability and bias. This is the first part of the four-session workshop, News Literacy Workshop: Step-by-Step Strategies for Educating Your Students.
