Our online tools make history, civics and media literacy relevant to students’ lives by leveraging the Newseum’s collection to provide surprising and enlightening approaches to today’s pressing issues. We use the First Amendment as a springboard to illuminate the challenges of democracy and the importance of making informed decisions in a diverse and demanding world. Read why we feel First Amendment and media literacy should be linked in education.
“The depth of questions to spark curiosity, discussion and research are very beneficial. … Your focus on primary source documents is right in line with Common Core and research — love it!” — Michele Galla, teacher, Wrangell, Alaska
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Through our programs and online tools, we now reach more than 10 million students, teachers and lifelong learners around the globe. In an effort to quantify the impact on students’ learning, we hired the education nonprofit organization Project Tomorrow to survey teachers who used NewseumED.org resources in spring 2016. Here’s what they told us.
NewseumED.org is produced by NewseumED, the education department of the Newseum and Freedom Forum Institute. Since 1997, we’ve produced educational resources and experiences powered by the content and collection of the Newseum. Our on-site offerings include free classes for visiting school groups, professional development workshops and adult team-building experiences.
NewseumED also travels around the country and the globe to present on media literacy and First Amendment topics, ranging from how to lead conversations about controversial topics to the perils of propaganda.

“Thank you for your commitment to education on the American press; we believe that the U.S. media, while not perfect, is a great example to foreign nations of what a strong, vibrant, free press can be.” — David Kierski, U.S. Embassy in Guinea, after a virtual class
