Event description

Description

Join this session to learn how to teach our students to be savvy analyzers and critical readers of information in an age of misleading, manipulated, biased, and fake news and media.

  • Participants will learn how to look at different kinds of popular media and information sources, and share with others how to evaluate them.

  • Participants will learn how a logical train of thought can turn illogical. From the slippery slope to spurious correlations, participants will pick apart these and other common fallacies with a learner-centered approach.

  • Participants will leave this session with increased personal awareness of misinformation in multiple forms with a focus on instructional ideas to teach their students to analyze media and information critically using reasoning and evidence.

This program is eligible for 5.5 hours of CTLE credit in Content.

The New York City Department of Education is recognized by the New York State Education Department's Office of Teaching Initiatives as an approved sponsor of CTLE for Professional Classroom Teachers, School Leaders and Level III Teaching Assistants.
