Training: ‘Questioning the News!’

Questioning the News: Critical Literacy in English and PSHE

  • Date: 13th February 2019
  • Time: 9:30am – 3:30pm
  • Venue:  The Guardian, Kings Place, 90 York Way, London N1 9AG
  • Cost: £20

Fake news is a real problem. The proliferation of digital devices and content means navigating the news can be overwhelming. Recent evidence from the National Literacy Trust (2018) found that only 2% of children in the UK have the critical literacy skills they need to tell whether a news story is real or fake.

Critical literacy is a cross-curricular approach to teaching that encourages pupils to question and challenge information and discern the truth. The course explores how critical literacy is key to improving pupils’ critical thinking skills when discussing, reading and writing news within both English and PSHE.

Through exploring ways to create an authentic newsroom experience in your classroom, this course will help you to develop high quality reading and writing outcomes for your pupils whilst deepening their awareness of the media’s impact upon their behaviours, identity and wellbeing.

The training is aimed at teachers, literacy leaders and PSHE subject specialists working with Key Stage 2.
