Teacher Open House, Summer Fun Deal, ISTE
"My class LOVED the two [virtual] lessons from the Newseum. I hope to continue to utilize this resource; it's a break from me standing in front of them... Maybe one day everyone can be educated on fake news (and ethics)."
— Jaime Fettrow-Alderfer, professor, Lebanon Valley College
