Give Curricula/Get Curricula!
Curriculum Access Program
Ad Fontes Media is excited to introduce our Curriculum Access Program through which a portion of all Ad Fontes membership dollars funds access to our News Literacy Curricula for individual educators who lack institutional funds to purchase it.
Our collection of Media Literacy Curricula is called SUMMA; Systems for Understanding Methods of Media Analysis. Our complete introductory news analysis methodology course – SUMMA Essentials – is already available and geared toward middle school through college students. We intend to create additional, differentiated products in the future.
Our online news media analysis tool, and course companion for SUMMA, is CART, or Content Analysis Rating Tool. In learning to use CART, students can practice using the same tool our own analysts use to create the Media Bias Chart. Through the curriculum, they also learn our methodology.
