The resources below provide parent information and resources related to news and media literacy. 

Brainpop has produced a short and informative video (see below) parents may watch with their intermediate or middle school aged child to help determine the accuracy of online information.


Common sense media has created a video outlining the five essential media literacy questions kids should be asking when viewing materials online. 


Common Sense Media also posts a parent support page with answers to many questions commonly asked by parents. Questions are broken down by child age ranges. Parents may even post their own questions, and their support team will respond.
