The flood of fake news, propaganda, rumors, and advertising that often masquerade as news has made it harder than ever to separate fact from fiction. Social Studies teachers can help students learn to recognize the differences between fact and rumor, news and advertising, news and opinion, and bias and fairness. Join us for an introductory webinar highlighting resources available at the News Literacy Digital Resource Center.
