The spread of disinformation is nothing new, but engaging websites and ubiquitous social media make it far easier to distribute and more difficult to detect. Join Susan Brooks-Young as she explores strategies that educators can use themselves and with students to effectively evaluate the truth in what they read, see, and hear. In addition to sharing some approaches and tips you and your students can use to become more skilled consumers of media, Susan will provide access to a free online resource for teachers.

This webinar was very informational. I teach Social Studies, so we look at historical facts as well as current information. I am looking forward to using these activities, perhaps in collaboration with our math teachers, to help educate our students to media literacy. Thank you.
