About News Literacy Project
A U.S.-based nonprofit that aims to help the public learn how to identify credible information and recognize misinformation in the news media they consume.
The News Literacy Project is a nonpartisan nonprofit that provides resources to educators and the general public in order to help them learn how to determine credible information and recognize misinformation or disinformation. The News Literacy Project aims to build a national movement to advance the practice of news literacy throughout American society, creating better informed, more engaged and more empowered individuals — and ultimately a stronger democracy.
The News Literacy Project offers several resources and services for educators, including an online learning platform that can be used in classrooms, called Checkology. Checkology is a free e-learning platform with engaging, authoritative lessons on subjects like news media bias, misinformation, conspiratorial thinking, and more. Learners develop the ability to identify credible information, seek out reliable sources and apply critical thinking skills to separate fact-based content from falsehoods.
The News Literacy Project also offers a free weekly newsletter, professional development opportunities, and a variety of classroom materials in their effort to improve news literacy both in the classroom and beyond.
