This is a lesson published and created by Scholastic Inc. I use it and really like the stepping stones it gives for students to evaluate sources and consider the information they consume as well as share. Students will be able to identify disinformation disguised as credible journalism by looking at real-life examples. Students will engage in critical examination of information found in the media www.scholastic.com/factsfirst
