What is News. Voice. Power.?
In order to become an effective and engaged citizen in our democracy, one must be well informed. The increasingly complex and changing landscape of news consumption requires careful and thoughtful navigation. Engaged citizens are not only critical consumers of news, they know how to leverage the news media effectively. While literacy is stressed in public education, news literacy is noticeably absent. This is why we have created News. Voice. Power.
Through this curriculum, students will:
- Understand the necessity of an informed public in a well-functioning democracy
- Develop the skills to be critical news consumers
- Apply the skills of being news producers and media activists
