Understanding the News

It is more and more apparent that it is hard to tell the difference between real and fake news. If teachers flunk tests about it, how can they teach their students to understand what's what? Fake and real news items are thrown at us daily, on tv, on the internet, on the streets of our cities; everywhere we look and even when we don't think we're looking. Easy-to-understand text, simple infographics, quizzes, and lots of examples helps kids learn how to crack the code of real vs. fake news.

School Library Journal, Series Made Simple - Rebecca Gueorguiev, New York Public Library

"Advertising, propaganda, social media, and the news are explored here, both historically and currently, with an emphasis on the effect of modern technology. These topics are presented in a balanced manner. The authors aim to grow children into discerning, media-literate youngsters adept at making informed choices and opinions with their media experiences. . . .A necessary purchase for preparing children to navigate today’s media-rich landscape." - School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
