The News Literacy Project
Director of Educator Network Expansion

The News Literacy Project, a nonpartisan national education nonprofit based in Washington, D.C., provides programs and resources for educators and the public to teach, learn and share the abilities needed to be smart, active consumers of news and information and equal and engaged participants in a democracy. Our vision is for news literacy to be embedded in the American education experience, and for people of all ages and backgrounds to know how to identify credible news and other information, empowering them to have an equal opportunity to participate in the civic life of their communities and the country.

Our free innovative resources for educators include the Checkology® virtual classroom, a browser-based learning platform with more than a dozen interactive lessons for students in grades 6-12. Featuring real-life examples and subject-matter experts, these lessons are closely aligned with state standards and ideal for educators of social studies, English language arts, civics, history, media, and science. Additional free resources include a Newsroom to Classroom program, weekly newsletters highlighting recent cases of misinformation in the news, a variety of professional development opportunities, a podcast, an educator forum, and an online library featuring lesson plans, posters, infographics, quizzes, and more.
