***Please note one article ' Adele's Shoutout' contains the word Jerk and f**king so please read before giving to students if they are too young for this. If they are too young for this remove the article from the handout :) I work with Seniors so this is not a problem. You could alternatively block the word out with white out etc if you want to use the article because it is a favorite of my students as it is quiet humorous. ****This bundle includes all news articles from Fake News 1 and Fake News 2
That is over 60 pages of news articles in which students must study and decide whether they are:
-Sattire (some satire peaces mention words such as drunk and sexy dancing)
Students are required to study the article given to them and read the abstract. It is then their job to go off and research that particular article and find out what website it came from, the author, and whether they think it is real news fake news, or satire. After they make this decision they are asked to give reasons for that answer.
As well as this students are required to find websites which also ran with this article, how many shares it got online, and what section of the website it was published.
