This is a 5 day unit about validating sources on the internet and social media. It is taught so that students understand and respect the obligations of using social media wisely before sharing and the importance of giving credit to creators through citing sources. It is a blended unit with a final project to be done in Apple's Keynote where students will show what they have learned in a slide show to other students in the class. They will be able to practice what they learn in class and become better at research, validating sources, and spotting fake news.
