Slate Joins the News Literacy Project

Slate has joined the News Literacy Project as a participating news organization, becoming the first online news provider to join the effort to help middle school and high school students become smarter and more frequent consumers and creators of credible information. 

“The News Literacy Project has a mission that Slate is very pleased to support,” said John Alderman, publisher of the Slate Group. “As the media landscape multiplies in size and complexity, helping students navigate and vet information sources is more vital than ever.”
