That’s why we believe in the power of learning content analysis. Through the practice of analyzing and rating genuine, contemporary articles, students hone the skills necessary to discern veracity, identify perspective, and recognize spin.
Our approach makes learning news literacy fun and engaging.
Through the 10-lesson course, students first learn our content analysis methodology.
Then, by rating news articles themselves, students apply their learning as they create their own Media Bias Charts, individually or collectively. The more articles and news sources they rate, the more complete their charts will be–and the more skilled they will be at critically analyzing the news.
The curriculum includes our 10-lesson news analysis training, the current static Media Bias Chart and updates for the length of the subscription, and access to CART❐ – our Content Analysis Rating Tool. Using the CART interface, teachers assign content to rate, and students practice the rating methodology taught through the lessons by placing content on a blank Media Bias Chart, eventually producing their own customized charts individually or collectively.
