Information and Media Literacy
The Information and Media Literacy collection focuses on why and how to teach students to navigate, evaluate, and make connections across sources of information. The collection has a specific focus on online reading comprehension skills and strategies. Although students have incredible access to information on the Internet, they need to learn how to effectively read, critique, and apply this information. The collection brings together: sample K-12 learning standards; professional texts, online workshops, and other resources for educators; and sample lesson plans, instructional resources, and assessments. Educators might find these resources helpful as they work to implement current learning standards, and incorporate information and media literacy skills in their local curricula.
