This is a lesson plan on learning to recognize fake news articles. Part of this is understanding the bias behind certain websites or organizations. This is difficult for American students, let alone international students. I would recommend making bias-recognition a regular part of class, especially if you are teaching a reading or writing class, so students can start to understand this in their IEP classes before moving on to university classes where they will be expected to be able to analyze sources. This lesson plan is most appropriate for intermediate and advanced readers. The majority of the words in the article (78%) are K-1 and K-2 words (words found within the 1000 and 2000 most commonly used words), but the length may be a bit difficult for low-intermediate readers.
This lesson plan is meant for English as a Second Language students and teachers, but can be adapted for a wider audience.
