Digital Citizenship: Real News vs Fake News

Lesson Overview

A recent study by Stanford University found an overwhelming majority of students were not able to tell the difference between so-called fake news and real news. Part of the solution involves providing students with the media literacy skills they need to evaluate sources, including social media. Students will explore the problems with fake news and gain confidence exploring the media that they come across every day.
