PowerPoint and Word file with speakers notes

[Expanded on March 24]

In brief:

  • Learn some of the history of fake news.

  • The what, why and how of fake news.
  • Coronavirus fact check: 6 reports for students to confirm or debunk
  • students summarize the lesson by creating infographics.

Resource in detail:

I used this as a precursor to conducting individual research projects. I noticed my students do not understand the importance of reliable sources.

This is a powerpoint presentation (38 slides) which gives the background for the rise of fake news from a 1835 example to the latest in deep fake.

It gives concrete examples and finishes with rules of thumbs.

Concepts covered: fake vs. perspective, traditional media vs new media, misleading images and Covid-19 fake news assignment.

Inside are good visual examples, and a short video clip.

It should be super engaging; both a fun break and a serious class discussion.

The slides all have notes for the teacher.

It's also fully editable.

This was a really successful unit in my class.

I hope you love it as well!
