Faux News

Friend or Faux? Since much of the programming that is highlighted in #streamPBS has a lot of news-related content, this month we will be featuring a resource on the essential subject of understanding the differences between legitimate and fake news. You can download the powerpoint presentation created and shared at our annual teacher training institute by Tammy Swift, one of our Prairie Public Education Services staff members. Or you can view it as a pdf, by clicking the fake news image below.

About #streamPBS:

Education Content for Teen and Adult Learners

Many of our popular PBS television programs have supplemental education materials that encourage personalized and project-based learning.

Current PBS television programs are usually available for free on air, via streaming video for a limited time, or for an extended time with a paid PBS Passport.

#streamPBS will feature free monthly teen and adult education content based on some of our popular television programs, to help educators create transmedia lessons, for effective learning anywhere, anytime.

See our High School Resources page under the Teachers tab for the complete #streamPBS collection.
