News Literacy Project Fall Forum

Oct 19, 2011

Qualcomm’s Dean Brenner introduced the News Literacy Project’s Fall Forum Event on Oct. 19., a series focusing on politics, public policy and the press.

Columnists David Brooks of The New York Times and E.J. Dionne Jr. of Washington Post discussed “Demosclerosis: The Challenge of Moving America Forward in a Hyper-Partisan Age.” Jessica Yellin, CNN’s chief White House correspondent, moderated the event.

The News Literacy Project initiated the Fall Forum at Whitman in 2010 with three events featuring prominent journalists and other public figures. The Washington Post, The New York Times and CNN are among 20 news organizations that are participating in the project, which is active at Whitman, Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School and E.L. Haynes Public Charter School in Washington, D.C., as well as schools in New York City and Chicago.

The Washington Post and Qualcomm sponsored this year’s event. Qualcomm also is the lead sponsor of the project’s programs in Washington, DC and Bethesda. We believe that mobile technology provides an opportunity to improve and transform the educational experience of students worldwide.

The News Literacy Project, which is based in Bethesda, brings seasoned journalists into middle school and high school classrooms, where they give students the critical-thinking tools to appreciate the value of quality news coverage and to encourage them to consume and create credible information across all media and platforms.

More than 185 journalists are listed in the News Literacy’s online directory, including broadcast correspondents, authors of best-selling books and winners of journalism’s highest honors. Since 2009, nearly 100 journalist fellows have made more than 250 presentations in classrooms, conferences, workshops and other programs.
