Why work on news, factchecking and opinion skills
Children and young people deal with news and information differently at each age. That is why we developed the 'News in the classroom growth line', a vision of how to work on news and information, adapted to the development of each age group. All News in the Classroom material follows this growth line.
Mediawijs developed 3 teaching packages that follow this growth line and are made to teach young people from every grade of secondary education how to deal with news, online (dis)information and forming opinions. Discover Newsmakers (12-14 years), Factcheckers (14-16 years) and Opinionmakers (16-18 years)!
