Stony Brook Dean on Teaching Journalism Literacy

Howard Schneider is talking about how he teaches news literacy to all students not just journalism students at Stony Brook. It is excellent presentation and worth watching now as a livestream, but will be archived and worth listening to by anyone interested in the future of journalism.

Here is more about him from the Sharing the News program at the New England News Forum:

  • Howard Schneider is founding dean of the School of Journalism at Stony Brook University, Long Island, and former editor of Newsday, the Long Island daily. Stony Brook has received grants from the MacArthur Foundation the Ford Foundation to develop a national “news literacy” curriculum for secondary schools and colleges.
