Fake News... Learning to tell what real and what's not
Students will read about why people believe fake news. This will serve as an activator to the lesson. Begin by asking students if they have read any fake news lately. Ask them for examples of fake news. Have them brainstorm on why people believe fake news. Then students will read the article. Have them compare their theories to why it spreads in the article.
Students will watch the video from common sense and see how to spot fake news.
Students will use the website evaluation guide to find and evaluate three sources. As a class, discuss the students findings.
