This particular unit and the four  lessons address the spread of fake news and make connections with the theme of freedom of the press with an emphasis on the question: What can schools do to educate for media literacy and the critical consumption of information provided by the media?

In lesson one students learn what is fake news, and in lesson two, they analyze and make inferences about a cartoon on fake news. Lesson three introduces them through the types of questions to ask to determine if the source is fake or real, and  for the final lesson, they  create a poster with text and an image to raise awareness of fake news on social media.
