Fridays are awesome. Nonfiction is awesome. Together, the combination is almost magical. Standardized test prep does not need to be miserable and irrelevant for your students (and you). The purpose of my nonfiction Friday series is to get students talking about engaging and important issues of the day, while mixing in a little Common Core Reading for Information and standardized test prep in the process.
Use as a bell ringer or use to guide your whole day. As this is all about fake news, it would be great to use when discussing how to choose reliable research for an essay. It could also go well with a literature unit that discusses truth, the importance of media, etc.
What is included:
7 multiple-choice questions and key based on CCSS and ACT/SAT question stems
A PowerPoint that debriefs the multiple-choice questions, offers bonus discussion questions, and gives a link to additional relevant materials.
Please note: the 7 multiple-choice questions are based on the NPR article, "Can You Believe Your Own Ears? With New 'Fake News' Tech, Not Necessarily" by Tim Mak. You will have to get a copy of this article for your students.
