Nieman Reports;Summer2011, Vol. 65 Issue 2, p50
The article discusses some practices to avoid when teaching news literacy. Educators and news practitioners are advised not to disregard the content of an introductory course in journalism when teaching news literary to non-journalists. They are discouraged from focusing solely on a journalist's point of view as their goal should be to help develop the critical thinking and communication skills of their students. They are also advised not to focus on teaching about the ideals of U.S. journalism.
