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 News Literacy Curricula is called SUMMA; Systems for Understanding Methods of Media Analysis. The SUMMA News Literacy Curriculum is already available and intended for middle school through college students, as instructors have the ability to choose the content they rate. We intend to create additional, more differentiated products in the future.
The SUMMA News Literacy curriculum includes access to our Content Analysis Rating Tool, also known as CART. When using our Content Analysis Rating Tool, students practice on the same platform our own analysts use to create the Media Bias Chart. Through the companion SUMMA News Literacy curriculum, they also learn our methodology.
