“NewseumED offers a wealth of resources for educators on media literacy, including lesson plans, artifacts, and case studies. They also offer virtual classes and professional development for educators.”
“NewseumED is an incredible tool that gives students access to primary sources that can help teach media literacy and provide a closer look into historical events past and present.”
