PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This non-fiction lesson engages students in a discussion about FOMO, or fear of missing out, a modern affliction. The lesson includes links to an article, a TED talk and a youtube video that introduce the concept and challenge the students to consider their social media habits. The first two authors express concerns over the lack of face-to-face conversation and alone time in today's society. The final video celebrates the joy of being alone.

This zip file includes links to and questions for the article and TED talk, two options for an experiment the students can conduct, and a writing assignment. Answer keys and rubrics are supplied, as well as a slide show to guide you and your students through the discussion.

If you would like to engage your students in more discussion about social media, check out my non-fiction lesson on Facebook Philosophy.

I also have a non-fiction unit on Embracing Failure.
