Title Make up a fake news story
Objectives Students must learn skills and capabilities to check the quality, bias, and background of news they encounter daily. Thus, when instructing students how to spot fake news, we need to teach them to:

Develop a critical mindset (consider bias, quality, sensationalism, and the date of creation);
Ask: why has this been written, and by who?;
Check the source of the story;
Check elsewhere to see if the story appears in more than one place.

Description The aim of this task is to develop students’ critical thinking and fact-checking skills by making them differentiate between real and fake news stories. It also helps them understand the importance of using trustful sources while spreading false information.
