A Backpack Journalist – teachers have assembled a guide to becoming a “Citizen’s Journalist!” and achieve “News Literacy”.

What’s that to you?  In our world of fast changing news, the Internet and Social Media, just how do you take it all in – and make sense of it.  Should you or should you not, set up a blog, write a letter to the Editor when a community matter is of most importance to you?  What’s the best way to communicate – via a written letter, email, tweet or ?

A Backpack Journalist’ guide has been assembled to help with these decisions, and to provide you with step by step instructions to follow.

This guide will also help define the words:  “News Literacy”.   What’s this you ask?  How can you as a private citizen, often dealing with limited time and in our  fast paced world, make the determination between facts and fiction?  Is it the reporter’s personal opinion, or facts?
