Truth, Truthiness, Triangulation: A News Literacy Toolkit for a “Post-Truth” World." And I read. And I read. Then I read it again. This was no blog post. For school librarians, this was a bible.
I started last month by interviewing Greg Toppo, USA Today's National Education and Demographic Writer. We "tackled the big thorny issues" (as Joyce would put it) in journalism today. It was a really great discussion and I encourage you all to check it out. It was covered by eSchool News on March 10. Every week new webinars surface on how to keep kids from consuming "fake news" as if it were real news. Very few of them include conversations between journalists and educators. The webinar might have left a few participants with a nagging "Yes, but how?" Well that's what this week is about. On Wednesday, March 22 at 5PM, eastern time, I will have a chance to unpack Joyce's information literacy masterpiece with her. I am so excited to have this opportunity, and I hope you will join us.
