About This Webinar

Join PBS NewsHour Extra, NewsHour Student Reporting Labs, and Share My Lesson for a meaningful conversation and Q&A around media and news literacy.

Join Vicky Pasquantonio and Elis Estrada from PBS NewsHour Extra, NewsHour's teacher resource website, and Student Reporting Labs, NewsHour's youth journalism program for this invaluable session.

Attendees will take part in meaningful conversation and Q&A around media and news literacy--from "what the heck is media and news literacy?" to high-level analysis of some of the rotten apples in the media landscape. Also included will be a full exploration on the videos, activities and lesson plans available on misinformation, current events and what makes a reliable source. We will also provide useful techniques to conclude discussions on these topics, so your students won't resent you for wrapping up the very best part of class.

Professional Credit

Available for one-hour of PD credit. A certificate of completion will be available for download at the end of your session that you can submit for your school's or district's approval.

Share My Lesson is now a New York State Education Department-approved provider for Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) requirements and an Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) approved Professional Development provider.
