Chances are, your students are more likely to consume news on the web or social media.  As we know, this  creates challenges in the classroom and society.   Participants in this session will learn the historical background of misleading news stories, conspiracy theories, and false flags and then classroom ready examples of how we can teach and use critical thinking and logic to counter such stories.
