Real or “Fake News”? Teaching Discernment of Credibility in Journalism

 

With all the talk of “fake news,” we thought it’d be helpful to create a resource that practically helps students (of any age!) learn how to discern credible sources from sources lacking credibility. Using non-controversial examples (i.e. nothing remotely political), we’ve created a three-day “Fake News” unit, which empowers students with the vocabulary and sensibility to discern legitimate journalism from “fake news” (and the gradient of content between the two).

Subscribers to our email list received this three-day unit for free. If you’d like to receive future lesson plans free of charge, sign up here.

You can take a look at the preview of the unit, or buy it for yourself, here.
