News Literacy in the age of Coronavirus

The Center for News Literacy at Stony Brook University has prepared a self-contained lesson on how students can judge the reliability of news and information about the coronavirus pandemic.

This powerpoint presentation is adaptable for middle school and high school students and is suitable for online platforms. The lesson also includes possible exercises and a list of key resources.
