LW: Debate: How Can Students Become Prepared to Spot Fake News?

![Ear](https://s3.amazonaws.com/Listen_Current_Research/ear+emoji.png)
A recent study tested over 7,800 teenagers on their ability to differentiate fake from real news and sponsored ads from news articles. The results showed that 80-90 percent of high school students had a difficult time judging the credibility of news. This skill is necessary to make choices about what to believe and what to share. Listen to this story to hear more about this study and what can be done to educate people about fake news and then debate with your students, how can students become prepared to spot fake news?
