Preparing Students for Tomorrow’s Headlines

How can we help students navigate misinformation and a 24 hour news cycle? Join Common Sense Education as we dive into an example of a lesson that helps students navigate if they think breaking news is broken. In this interactive session, we will explore the digital citizenship skills and habits of mind that will help prepare students to break the mis/disinformation cycle, build fact checking skills, and expand their perspectives by exploring credible & diverse sources. Participants will leave with lessons and resources from Common Sense Education and across the web to help support students to be critical and not cynical when processing news online.
