Virtual Event: Let’s Talk About Fake News

December 3, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This will be an overview of how to approach teaching fake news through the lens of media literacy. Helping students take on a media mindset means understanding the 5 core concepts of media literacy – AUTHORSHIP, FORMAT, AUDIENCE, CONTENT, PURPOSE – and their corresponding questions. Asking these questions can deepen your understanding of the messages and tools of all media.”
