Literacy Lessons Based on the News

The Center for News Literacy in Stony Brook University’s School of Journalism has established the Digital Resources Center, which features “Ripped from the Headlines”—literacy lessons, based on the latest news, ready to use in class. The Resources Center also offers “Course Pack,” a 14-module curriculum organized around eight major concepts, which takes students from the first information revolution of Johannes Gutenberg’s printing press to the Digital Age of Mark Zukerberg’s Facebook. Each lesson can stand alone or be integrated into a specific instructional program. An accompanying Glossary presents the language of news literacy. Teachers can “Get a Global View” with instructional resources from the Resources Center’s international partners, as well as DIY News Literacy Lesson” offering inspiration and templates for creating their own instruction around News Literacy concepts or in collaboration with other News Literacy teachers.
