Please allow 3-5 hours to cover all material attached. Included: x3 PPTS Embedded videos (links in notes); sample sentence starts, differentiated activities - must,could, should approach. Students will consider the changing nature of how we view and interact with news stories today. Lessons will encourage speaking and listening. Students will also work on their writing skills, with a particular focus on their functional writing skills. I usually follow these lessons up with a segment on Fake News and I'm currently working on developing a bundle for that topic.
