Unit 7.2 Lesson 3 Before the start of the lesson, load Teacher resource 3.ppt ready to show on the large display. 5 minutes 1 Starter: Recognising that not all information is accurate Tell pupils that during this lesson they will learn how to judge the reliability of information. Show slide 1 of Teacher resource 3.ppt to explain the lesson objectives, or refer to the displayed objectives. Slide 1 Quickly distribute Pupil resource 6, A news story from April 1957. Alternatively, ask pupils to load it from the shared area of the network. Give pupils 2 or 3 minutes to study it, then ask for their comments. By this time they should recognise the absurdity of the story. Make the point that, on first reading, the document gives the impression of being reliable. The story originated with the BBC and was broadcast on 1 April 1957 as an April Fools’ Day spoof. Stress that an ‘official’ appearance does not on its own guarantee reliability.
