news literacy week graphicThe News Literacy Project and The E.W. Scripps Company (NASDAQ: SSP) are teaming up to launch a national public awareness campaign to promote news literacy and the role of a free press in American democracy. The campaign is part of the second annual National News Literacy Week, Jan. 25-29. The week aims to promote news literacy as a fundamental life skill and to provide the public with the tools needed to be an informed and empowered populace.

Everyone can get involved with National News Literacy Week, Jan. 25-29, in a number of ways:

  • Visit to test your “news literacy fitness” and take the pledge to be news-literate.
  • Watch NLP’s new Checkology® virtual classroom lesson “Conspiratorial Thinking” to learn how and why conspiracy theories develop and how to prevent people from falling for them.
  • Join the conversation on social media at #NewsLiteracyWeek.
