While media literacy teaches students how to analyze, evaluate and even make their own content, it often fails to instill an understanding of why these skills are so important and necessary in the first place.
“The coolest free resource I'd never heard about. NewseumED champions the First Amendment and media and digital literacy... I'm going into the rabbit hole, team!”
“ I was completely impressed with the [Wells Fargo Media Literacy workshop]. Having traveled from Chicago for the event, I can say it was well worth my time and the expense to attend.”

“NewseumED approaches fact-finding in the lens of journalism. It requires students to examine themselves and take a hard look at their own biases, the news that attracts them, and the information that repels them.”
“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.”
“At a time when the concept of 'truth' has become pretty shaky, having access to primary sources has never been more important. NewseumED deserves a place on every history teacher’s list of go-to resources.”
