    News Literacy and Civic Engagement Seminar

    October 27
    9:30 AM to 12 PM

    Presenter: Michael Spikes
    Never before has the need for News Literacy been more urgent. As news consumers are bombarded with a constant stream of fake news, propaganda, hoaxes, rumors, satire, and advertising — that often masquerade as credible journalism — it is becoming more and more difficult to distinguish fact from fiction. While the public’s faith in the news media erodes, purveyors of misinformation have helped give rise to troubling cultural trends and alarming political movements.

    Learn about the basics of News Literacy from the Center for News Literacy, one of the leading organizations that has been arming educators with the tools they need to bring crucial critical thinking skills to help students navigate our new information age for more than 10 years.

    Attendees should RSVP by e-mailing Liliana Raygoza.
