What is news (literacy)?
News is current information about what is happening in the world. There’s a lot of news that happens every day, but that doesn’t mean everything makes the news. On the other hand, sometimes you might think something is news, when it’s really fake news. That’s why it’s important to work on news literacy, to make sure you can understand and use news.
