Never before has the need for News Literacy been more urgent. As news consumers are bombarded with a constant stream of fake news, propaganda, hoaxes, rumors, satire, and advertising — that often masquerade as credible journalism — it is becoming more and more difficult to distinguish fact from fiction. While the public’s faith in the news media erodes, purveyors of misinformation have helped give rise to troubling cultural trends and alarming political movements.

TOP REVIEWS FROM MAKING SENSE OF THE NEWS: NEWS LITERACY LESSONS FOR DIGITAL CITIZENS
Best step-by-step course to take me from a fairly ignorant news reader to a person that knows how to gauge the veracity of the news I see now.
Excellent coverage. Enjoyed the resources. Gained a great deal from taking this course.
Very informative and clear and there are some assignments to make us understand more. But there are too many links that we have to read, I prefer the video and examples and assignments.
Excellent course, topics are very well formulated and taught with clarity. This course leaves you with handful of skills to analyze daily news and information around you.
