Information is the most fundamental element of democracy. It is the basis for citizens’ understanding of the world around them; how we analyze social issues, assess challenges, determine political priorities, form opinions and evaluate our options. We must move beyond the unhelpful term “fake news” and teach students to more precisely identify the many types of misleading, inaccurate and false information that they encounter. Explore motivations behind different types of propagators of misinformation and learn fact-checking skills and tools to help encourage student learning. By gaining a deeper understanding of misinformation, you can help students become less susceptible to it and more likely to prioritize reliable, standards-based sources of news and information.
