True Story, Better Source

Media Literacy Workshop (Grade 7 – 9) 

Help your students learn the difference between fact and fiction.

This 60-minute interactive program introduces students to the concepts of misinformation and disinformation in online media. Students are guided to evaluate, identify, and verify information sources using lateral reading and reverse image searching.

Using fun and relevant examples from social media, current events, and pop culture, this program also develops critical thinking skills and introduces students to trusted Digital Library resources that can support their schoolwork.   

Students will work in groups and need access to a tablet or laptop device to fully participate during this workshop. Further instructions will be provided in an email before the workshop.
