Events in Chile put students' news literacy skills to the test


In the days that Nido was closed in October due to the unrest in Chile, Ms. Frick and her fellow humanities teachers saw an opportunity for their students to engage in meaningful and authentic learning at home.

The Grade 8 humanities unit usually teaches a media literacy unit in their second semester—but with fake news and misinformation spreading quickly on social media, they decided to implement it into their teaching immediately using the Checkology® virtual classroom from The News Literacy Project.

The events provided a real-world laboratory for teaching news literacy. "Out of all the lessons that we have taught, I truly think the lesson on misinformation has been the most impactful," she said.
