Product Description

This five-lesson unit is designed to train secondary students to evaluate source credibility and recognize questionable content and “fake news” on the Internet.

✿Lesson 1: The Problem

Students will learn relevant terminology and apply it to an article about students’ inability to distinguish the real from the fake.

✿Lesson 2: Headlines and Sponsored Content

Students will learn to analyze the language of headlines and evaluate sites based on native ads and other sponsored content.

✿Lesson 3: Spin

Students will compare and contrast how different outlets present and interpret facts.

✿Lesson 4: Hoax Sites and Satire

Students will study the characteristics of sites designed specifically to create fake news for different purposes.

✿Lesson 5: Culminating Project

Students will complete one of three projects in order to demonstrate their learning or extend their knowledge. Each student may create an infographic, create and track a fake news story, or research the consequences of fake news.

The seven student handouts are available on Google Slides. The link is provided in the file upon download.
