This resource was inspired after noticing a rise in fake
news during the Covid-19 pandemic. The same week, Facebook launched a campaign to help people spot fake news I also noticed similar adverts on the radio.
This booklet aims to:
Introduce pupils to the
terms fact/opinion and provide opportunities to apply knowledge.
Encourage pupils to think about what the term ‘text’ means,
state examples, learn that all texts are created for a reason and think about when fact/opinion may be used.
Highlight the importance of taking into account all the information provided and to see things from different perspectives.
Explain that the language is powerful. The language sets the tone and has the potential to condition the response of the reader.
