What you'll learn

In this class, students take a step back from the media negativity to look at the positive: what are the qualities of fair news coverage? They'll learn how to assess word choice, use of context and counterpoints to make informed, impartial evaluations of the news they encounter in print, online and on social media. Practice with real-world examples ensures they leave ready to tune into content and tune out the chaos.
