The resources below are those that allow librarians, educators, and any others interested, some more insight into the media discussed throughout the toolkit. These include organizations actively working on the issue of news literacy, as well as online sources analyzing filter bubbles and social media considerations (including a fake tweet generator to show how easily a fake tweet is made). We also created a resource on the anatomy of a website, to address the confusion of news vs. opinion vs. ad, etc. Such resources could flow into the presentation if there’s a desire to expand on a certain topic, but they can also be presented as useful tools for people to explore on their own.
PLP News Literacy Partners and Planning Resources
Often librarians would love to have a program featuring local experts on a particular topic, but aren’t aware of who is out there or how to reach them. This is a list of local media contacts or organizations who could be good choices to contact for news literacy programs. Many of the individuals and organizations linked to in the list below have shown an interest in helping the project and working with news literacy. Note that each person will have their own requirements and specialties.
