The term FAKE News seems to be used a lot these days! April Fool’s Day is a great opportunity to begin a discussion with students on FAKE and REAL news. Possible Interactive Notebook Activity.
A recent survey found that many young people(and adults for that matter) can’t seem to determine which is a real news story from a fake news story. We need to develop digital critical literacy with our students so they can try and determine the difference BEFORE they hit “send” to all their friends.
