This lesson can be used for either Library Media Specialists or English Teachers to help students navigate the murky world of online resources. From start to finish it should take about 45 minutes. It starts with a GREAT YouTube video on the importance of having quality sources (geared toward middle and high school). Then students are broken up into groups and lead into evaluating both phony news and legitimate news articles. They use a graphic organizer to guide them. And then finally are able to discuss their results with the class.
I have used this lesson many times myself so if you have any questions, feel free to shoot me an email for assistance.
