Read a description of this topic. access sample slides to use when teaching this set of lessons, and explore our Media Literacy Resource Library.


In this lesson, students take a deeper dive into the current election policy discussion. It’s important to update the sources with the most recent news articles on this hotly contested issue, and to take time for discussions of media bias and disinformation.

Note for educators: There are many excellent free resources available to support teaching media literacy in the classroom. C70 compiled a media literacy resource library, and we highlighted a few exemplary lessons that we believe are especially useful in a civics educational setting. These lessons were chosen for their ability to build the knowledge and skills needed to be a civically engaged young person.
