Our Content Philosophy 

The news is an educational tool, vital to our democratic republic.

We believe every student, educator, and parent should have access to trusted, engaging, and authentic news.

That's why we deliver interactive, multimedia news stories that provide the facts with rich context from diverse viewpoints.

Not only do we utilize an explanatory journalistic approach, but we make explicit connections between what is happening and why it matters to your civic and social life.

 

What to Expect from Bites Articles

 

CCSS- and C3-aligned content across four categories:

  • Law and Politics,
  • Life and Arts,
  • Science and Technology,
  • Sports and Health, and Science and Technology

 

Each article is firmly rooted in our content principles of:

 

Transparency

Our facts are aggregated from traditional, trustworthy newspapers and journalists who are held to the highest standards of reporting.

We always include a direct link to the original source so you can deep dive further.

Authenticity 

Our content comes from the real world.

We cover key issues and topics relevant to right now. Relevant content means more engagement, and increased engagement leads to higher achievement.

Accessibility

Bites Media is dedicated to accessible content for all students.

We believe in multiple pathways to learning. So read, click, listen, or watch what you need to get all the facts.

Consistency

Every article is written in the same outline format.

We use bullet notation to get straight to the facts. We always include two sides to the story so you are fully informed and have a holistic understanding, free from political or biased reporting.

Civics and Democracy

We believe civics education is strengthened through current events.

By making the connection through WHY IT MATTERS, we support students' social and civics understanding, consequently strengthening our democracy.
