Give your students the tools to succeed

Over 11 million students in classrooms across America will begin an unforgettable journey this fall. Some will advance to the national competition in National Harbor, Maryland. Others will compete in spelling bees at the district and regional level.

No matter what path their journey follows, your students will gain knowledge in spelling and vocabulary that will help them all their lives.




January 25-29 is National News Literacy Week!

News literacy is the ability to determine the credibility of news and other content, to identify different types of information, and to use the standards of authoritative, fact-based journalism to determine what to trust, share and act on.


News literacy is an important skill for your students to master and apply to their own media consumption. That's why the News Literacy Project recommends its free Checkology® virtual classroom for educators to help their students become more news literate.
