Ground News has developed a course that explores a host of media literacy terms, skills, and concepts. Program resources include explainer videos, vocabulary pages and guided activities for using Ground News in the K-12 classroom. Students will develop the full range of literacy skills required to read primary and secondary sources with the discerning eye of trained historians – from evaluating bias, to assessing reliability, to reading in context and weighing sources against each other. Ground News is a first-of-its-kind platform that uses experiential learning to teach students how to assess news coverage in real time.
