Custom Workshops

Fake News

Fake news is making news, and it’s a problem.

This workshop gives students media literacy skills they need to navigate the media, including how to spot fake news.

Subjects

Social studies, U.S. government, civics, journalism, research

Estimated Time

One 50-minute class

Introduction

A recent study by Stanford University found an overwhelming majority of students were not able to tell the difference between so-called fake news and real news. Part of the solution involves providing students with the media literacy skills they need to evaluate sources, including social media. With the help of NewsHour Extra, students will explore the problems with fake news and gain confidence exploring the media that they come across every day.

Essential question

What media literacy skills do students need to evaluate the reliability of a news source?

Presentation and Visual Aid Workshop

Workshop: Presentations Are Essential

This Workshop intends to instruct students on presentations through the principles of preparation, presentation, and practice of verbal & non-verbal communications. In addition, the utilization of visual aids, specifically slide presentations, will be practiced.

Subjects

Writing, Communications, etc.

Estimated Time

One 60-minute workshop

Essential questions

What is a presentation? What are visual aids? How do students use PowerPoint as a visual aid?
