Fake News and the 5 Ws

Fake News and the 5 Ws

This week, in the CM2 Jaguar class, Margaux and her dad taught us about Fake News.  We learned exactly what Fake News is and how to check our sources to ensure we are getting accurate information on the internet.  When analyzing a news source, we learned about the importance of the 5 W questions. Not only do professional journalists need to use these questions to verify their sources, but, we also solicit them in the classroom when we read or write our own stories.
Don’t forget to ask yourself The Five W’s!
Who?
What?
When?
Where?
Why?
Ask yourself: might this be fake?
