Infographic on Fake News Detection

A Washington, DC–based organization, the News Literacy Project (NLP) has devised an infographic to help teachers (and any news consumer) wondering how best to approach misinformation in the news and separate fact from conspiracy theory. “Ten Questions for Fake News Detection” helps teachers and students comb through an article to find telltale signs of falsehood. Caps lock and excessive punctuation are on the list of likely red flags. However, skepticism is only half the battle when evaluating news sources. The worksheet’s first question asks the reader to gauge his or her emotional reaction to an article.
