  • “I cannot begin to count all the aha moments I felt as a participant in the #ANEW15 advanced institute this summer. As I review the Google Slide presentations multiple times, I find myself revisiting those moments. There will be differences in my classroom this year because of my experience at the Newseum with so many brilliant teachers and librarians from all over the country. ... I hardly think there is any part of my teaching experience that will not be impacted by my three glorious days at the Newseum this summer.”

    Alan Weintraut
    AP English teacher
  • “I appreciate how easy NewseumED makes it to teach students to think critically about the media. The lessons introduce students to specific strategies they can use when they encounter media to assess its credibility, evaluate the level of bias present in the media, and counter their own biases when encountering information online.”
  • “The coolest free resource I'd never heard about. @NewseumED champions the #FirstAmendment and media and digital literacy. This is a really great thing. I'm going into the rabbit hole, team! Don't untie my cable or the bell attached to the string around my finger, please. ”

  • “I have attended some day-long seminars which were overbearing and tedious, and this one was just the opposite. All the content was interesting and will be useful to me in my classroom this year. I was completely impressed with the program. 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. However, this lens isn’t just about journalism — it’s about information as a whole. At times, this lesson plan actually delves deeper than information, too. 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.”

It's not merely a collection of primary sources - Newseum makes the resources relevant to students framing them around current issues and real world connections.
