Teaching media literacy to students is an ongoing challenge. But ABC-CLIO has resources to help! The AASL Knowledge Quest blog recently joined a chorus of praise for News Literacy: The Keys to Combating Fake News, by Libraries Unlimited authors Michelle Luhtala and Jacquelyn Whiting. This book provides critical tips and lessons to help students navigate misinformation in the modern media landscape, and aims to cultivate critical thinkers in both the classroom and library.
