KATC, Scripps partner for National News Literacy Week

Posted at 2:42 PM, Jan 27, 2020

There is so much information coming at us every day, so how do you know what's fact and what's fiction?

This week, January 27-31, KATC and our parent company E.W. Scripps are partnering with the News Literacy Project to answer that question.

This News Literacy Project will play out all week in schools across the country.

Throughout the week KATC and other Scripps' stations will air stories related to the topic of news literacy.

Scripps journalists are working directly with high schools in their communities to produce original pieces of student journalism and are teaching them about the standards and principles journalists use to identify, research and produce a story.

Tonight at 5:00 pm, we'll share the story that journalism students at St. Thomas More Catholic High School created as part of our partnership.
