Fake News Challenge

WARNING: This is a teaching tool. If you haven't completed this challenge in LTI with Mrs. Wells, you should wait and we will look at these websites together.


Okay so now you are on to me!  Let's see if you can separate FACT from FICTION:

Challenge Question #1: One is true and one is false

Challenge Question #2: VIDEOS! One is true and one is false

Challenge Question #3: One is true and one is false
Challenge Question #4: One is true and one is false

The Onion is a satirical publication. What is satire?
Watch this TED style talk and try to define satire:
How are these two Simpson's posters satirical?



Now let's create a criteria for spotting fake news:
Mr. B's Class-
1. If it seems unbelievable, it probably is unbelievable!
2. If there are too many ads (especially inappropriate) - beware!
3. Check the "about us" page.
Kristen's Class-
1. If the Ads are selling something or inappropriate...
2. Check the date of publication (byline).
3. Check the "about us" page.
