Knock Out Fake News

Year: 2019

Purpose:

This was a project for a web development course in my graduate program. The assignment was to build a website in HTML from scratch that would serve as an education resource.

I developed a news literacy mini-unit for teachers to implement within a larger unit of study. It includes five topics and a conclusion that includes links to additional resources, online games, podcasts, and additional full online courses.

It pairs well with units of study across the curriculum, including English, history, and speech classes.

Technology used:

  • HTML/CSS

  • Dreamweaver

  • Google Slides

  • Adobe Illustrator

Response:

Teachers have found this ready to go mini unit extremely helpful.
