Civic Engagement at SHM - Navigating Truth in our Media Today

 
Why does truth in media matter? Democracy relies on people having a voice in their government; being well-informed is central to that privilege and responsibility. Misinformation and disinformation make our society more divided, leaving us cynical and vulnerable. 
 
Learn how to:
-find and vet trusted information and fact-based reporting
-understand the context that colors our own views with confirmation bias
-be a responsible consumer of news.


We will have a special segment on how digital citizenship is addressed in our schools to help our students navigate the many forces informing their world views.  We’ll share valuable resources both for students and their parents to elevate their media literacy and make smart choices online.


Navigating social media and news media can be difficult and confusing. How do we find information that is objective and trustworthy? We all want to be thoughtful and engaged citizens of our world. Join us as we explore ways to sharpen our critical thinking skills and identify tools to help us be well informed on what is happening locally and globally.

This is in partnership with our Chai School program and happening in person at 7:00pm in the Sanctuary or on zoom. Zoom info will be sent in your confirmation email.
