Fake news is quite a hot topic! Not sure how to discuss fake news and finding credible sources with students? Come to this presentation to learn how the presenter teamed up with literacy teachers to collaborate and co-create a unit of study on fake news to aid in helping students determine fake news vs. credible sources. This unit on fake news and credible sources provided an opportunity for students to relate to the real world, and, more importantly, it sparked an honest, open conversation between teachers and students. Three years ago, the presenter began her journey of teaching about credible sources and fake news, but due to the increase of resources and books to teach, her work continues to grow and evolve; in particular through the amazing book titled Fact vs. Fiction: Teaching Critical Thinking Skills in the Age of Fake News, by Jennifer LaGarde and Darren Hudgins, which debuted on 12/19/18. This particular book supports and reaffirms the work that was done. You will gain a plethora of ideas, resources, tips and tricks to teach this hot (but more important than ever) topic to students of all grade levels, K - 12. It is more important than ever for us to teach students how to be the editors of the information they receive from various sources, especially from social media.
