Mucktracker promotes critical media literacy through innovative technological solutions. Our dedicated news tool and curriculum resources help students analyze, evaluate, and compare news sources in a teacher-supported environment.
In the spirit of the pioneering muckraker journalists of the past, we hope to inspire the next generation to better understand and shape the world around them.
Visualizations provide a birds-eye view of the news ecosystem, allowing students to examine larger narratives and step outside of their filter bubbles.
Students search news topics of their choice and make meaning of the articles through a drag-and-drop canvas. They analyze reporting by commenting on and tagging articles.
Students critically analyze and evaluate media sources with the aid of Mucktracker media literacy lessons and activities.
