Reading for the Love of It Feb. 22/23: “Teaching About Fake News”

I’ll be at the awesome Reading for the Love of It conference in Toronto, talking to educators about “How to teach kids about fake news–and how to avoid it.”

If you’re interested in media literacy, this is a not-to-be-missed presentation (in my humble opinion) because … well, check out what you’ll get:

  • How to spark critical thinking in kids
  • How to know if an article is real or not
  • How to investigate an article
  • The entire “fake news” spectrum
  • Awesome in-class lessons
  • Resources
  • And so much more (and that’s not just click-bait, baby! Okay, that’s actually a little click-baity. But my presentation isn’t!)

I’m presenting on Thursday Feb. 22 (12:45, Cedar Room) and on Friday Feb. 23 (12:45, Maple East & West) at The Sheraton Centre Hotel in downtown Toronto,

Here’s more information about Reading for the Love of It.

See you there!

  1. Hello Joyce, I am a fan of your work in Teaching Kids news and was at your workshop on Fake News at Reading for the Love of It. While I took copious notes, I am wondering if you are sharing your presentation. I have a group of “hungry and curious” teacher candidates at Western’s Faculty of Ed in Language Arts. What you presented was brilliant and practical and much needed.

    Thank you so much.

  2. Hi Joyce,
    I also attended your workshop last February at RFTLOI and am looking at some of the notes I made during your workshop to talk to teachers about critical literacy and teaching kids about fake news. I was wondering if you would be willing to share your presentation with me?
