Summary, etc.:
"The focus on fake news, "alternative facts," and general media mendacity distracts us from a very real educational challenge: teaching students the skills and dispositions that make them careful and thorough researchers. This is hard work, nd there are no easy recipes to facilitate the process. However, with carefully scaffolded lessons that nurture students to become increasingly savvy inquirers, readers, and writers, librarians and content area educators can help students meet these challenges and become informed, active citizens"-- Provided by publisher.
This book explains the difficulty in nurturing students to become critical researchers and offers practical lessons that empower students to excavate information that will help them learn. This guide to teaching news literacy explores a wealth of resources and classroom-tested lessons that educators in grades 7-12 can use in their own libraries and classrooms and explains the steps of the inquiry and research process in detail.
