Podcast – Fake News

Podcast: Fake News (Int)

“Deception may drive the creation for fake news; gullibility helps create a market for it.”

—Callum Borchers, Journalist

Today’s podcast features a reading from our intermediate Discussion Starters lesson about Fake News. In this podcast, learners listen to an article about a media trend that some say is a threat to democracy. The related lesson includes discussion questions that will get your students talking about how to prevent fake news from trending. Students also practice forming different types of questions.

To see the full transcript and use the ready-made lesson plan in class, log in to ESL Library and choose the intermediate level Fake News lesson from our Discussion Starters section.
