These lessons cover the basics of discerning between credible and false journalism (and the gradient between the two), using contemporary (but non-controversial) examples. There is also a slideshow (in PDF format) with links to examples of terms, as well as examples of credible journalism.
Arguably the most tangibly helpful aspect of this three-day unit is the "News Analysis Checklist" which students can apply to any form of journalism to asses its credibility. The checklist is available in PDF, as well as Google Drive, for those of you using Google Classroom.
For those who use the CCSS, each lesson has been carefully CCSS aligned (as reflected throughout the unit).
