How do we prepare students to navigate the world of online news? The answer is simple. Teach students to understand the difference between fact, fiction and to recognize when a source is not reliable, accurate, or authoritative. In the age of “post-truth,” “truthiness,” and downright false news sites, it more important than ever to give students the tools necessary to separate fact and fiction. Participants will leave the session with lesson plans for all levels.
