It's alarming how students know so little of the differences between real and fake news. As teachers, we can be mistaken in believing our students to be news literate due to their love of technology.
This quiz is meant to be fun and eye-opening, yet it assesses how well students know about the news they see every day.
Utilizing this six-question quiz is an excellent opportunity to introduce a lesson or unit on real and fake news. Not only must students identify whether a headline is real or fake, but there is also space for students to justify their reasoning via writing.
