As recent events in the Ukraine have demonstrated, it is imperative that educators support students in their ability to investigate news sources (including video and images) to ensure that what they are reading is reliable and accurate. How can we help students develop strategies to avoid misinformation and disinformation online? Educators in ALL content areas have the opportunity to play a role in helping students develop critical media literacy skills.
Start here with these resources:
MediaWise: The Teen Fact-Checking Network

Professional Development Opportunities in March
Change Your Classroom With Learning Guides
Do you want to create a framework for student autonomy, choice, and differentiation? Using simple applications you are familiar with, you will design and develop a learning guide using Google Slides. You will leave the session with a learning guide that can be immediately put to use in your classroom to support an upcoming lesson, unit, or topic. Ongoing support will be provided for those who attend the session and wish to continue to build and implement their learning guide after the session ends.
- Facilitators: Instructional Technology Specialist Wes Ryan & LEE Librarian Rachel McDevitt
