NLP’s Peter Adams examines the future of news literacy

Peter Adams, NLP’s senior vice president for educational programs, examined the future of news literacy for a National Association of Elementary School Principals publication.

“If ‘teaching literacy’ means teaching students to access, comprehend, and evaluate information and create meaningful information of their own, then it also necessarily means teaching three overlapping skill sets: news literacy, civic literacy, and digital literacy. Far from distinct areas of study, these specialized literacies signal ways in which literacy itself is changing,” Adams said.
