Solving the fake news crisis....how do we do it? The number one way is education. We need to teach all students how news is gathered, how it is written, and how to recognize a possible fake news story. This is the age of media and media studies should be required for all. This media unit could be included in a social studies class or an English class. No need to have a separate class to teach this. What does the curriculum look like? Come and hear some ideas and offer some suggestions.
