Deciphering Fake News from Fact


Presenter: Susan Kambrich, Sandra Stevenson
General Interest
CPD hours: 1.5

In an age of soundbites, social media, and new technology that can easily manipulate content, it is harder than ever to separate what’s real from what’s not. Join a New York Times photo editor and a Montessori educator to explore ways you can sort through the noise to best prepare yourself for the classroom. You will dive into applications, tools, and news sources, and explore lesson plans, curriculum resources, and opportunities for provocative conversation. You will leave feeling confident about your news intake and knowing what to trust to consume, and imparting the same abilities to your students.

Learner Outcomes

  • You will learn how to sift through media in order to best present what is relevant to your students.
  • You will learn how to discern which news sources are most accurate.
  • You will gain a better understanding of how to teach your students how to discern reliable media sources.
