Product Description
This is the first in a 5-lesson Fake News unit it am developing for my junior high ELL's.

The files include both .pdf and .docx / .pptx files for the lesson plans, slideshow, and quickwrite sheet.

The sequence of teaching for the unit will include:

Lesson 1: Is the truth important?
Lesson 2: Definining Key Terms in News Media
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: What to do when you encounter fake news.

The additional four lessons are in development and I will add each lesson to my store as I finish it.

I also hope to develop interactive notebook materials for this lesson and the others in the unit. For this lesson, though, the main activity is a quickwrite, which can easily be accomplished in notebooks without an extra foldable! :)
