Excellent website by news editors. Their news literacy curriculum can be used in many disciplines, mainly for K12. They give explicit attention to news and information literacy, as as fact-checking resources. The one drawback is that the site is hard to navigate, so "gems" (e.g., http://www.schooljournalism.org/news-literacy-lesson-plans/) are sometimes hard to find.
