Have you been looking for resources to help your students evaluate news sources and recognize fake news?
This unit is designed to be taught from lessons 1-5, but there are several pieces that can be pulled and taught independently as well. The only thing that would be useful for a teacher to add would be current news story examples so that the lessons are right up to the minute.
The unit sequence is:
Lesson 1: Is truth important?
Lesson 2: News vocabulary. Defining journalism, media, social media, news outlets, fake news, credibility, and post-truth.
Lesson 3: How to spot fake news.
Lesson 4: Why lie? What is “Fake News” and why would people create it? Why do people read and share it?
Lesson 5: Writing real news.
