This career unit gives students an introduction to the government and public administration career cluster and what a career in this field would be like. This is perfect for a career, technology, CTE or business class. The included PowerPoint presentation can be used by the teacher for whole class instruction, or provided to the students electronically (or as a printout) for them to review individually.

Finally, a short reflection questionnaire gives students the opportunity to reflect and analyze their learning as they determine if this career field is of interest to them. The project was created for grades 7-8 but could easily be used with high school students. The teacher can choose to use some or all of the provided lesson options included in this resource.

Fake News Lesson - British Values Conference

Fake News Lesson - British Values Conference

Lesson/Workshop aimed at higher KS2 to lower KS3 students (taught to Year 6's and 7's at a Bradford College conference). Starter - Students form a circle throwing a soft ball to one another giving synonyms or examples of the word 'fake'. Teacher starts off. Main - Students work on their tables sorting through the four examples of news. Their job is to decide which news is fake and which is real (check the notes on the slides to see whether the article is true or not). 2 are true and 2 are false. One article contains an element of truth and then a deliberate deception so that the teacher can explain this to the students. Main - Students then watch a short NewsRound video which gives examples of fake news. The students task is to create their own fake news Facebook article based on something happening in the world around them. Plenary - Students are told by the teacher that fake news can be serious, as in the case of the US Election 2016. The teacher is able to show and describe how sites such as Facebook and the BBC are gradually using more fact-checkers to ensure people know whether a post is true and to encourage them to not share fake news. Quiz on fake news at the end should the students finish early. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/benpickles17
