News literacy skills including:

Developed in partnership with the Center for News Literacy in the School of Journalism at Stony Brook University, this training will allow for guided exploration of the News Literacy Curriculum as well as opportunities for each participant to work with content and instructional experts to tailor turn-key resources and strategies to meet their own students’ instructional needs and learning outcomes.  (Faculty- Janis Schachter and David A.
