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
Nearly every academic subject requires students to have basic news literacy competence. However, for educators who don’t regularly teach the topic, it can be intimidating to take on the challenge of showing students how to figure out which sources to trust if they aren’t fully confident about what to trust themselves. In this session, expert Vanessa Otero of Ad Fontes Media covers step-by-step strategies to get you comfortable with incorporating news literacy exercises that can improve your skills and your students’ skills at the same time. This is the fourth part of the four-session workshop, News Literacy Workshop: Step-by-Step Strategies for Educating Your Students.
