Media Literacy: Fake or Real?
Which media sites are reporting the truth? How to discern the difference between real and “fake” or false information? More importantly, can students differentiate between real and fake news?

We need to stop the cycle of passing forward news and information that has not been substantiated. This course will help educators and their students become smarter consumers and producers of information.
