I am a secondary school librarian and would like to start teaching News Literacy through Checkology. I have the opportunity to prototype the platform with a class in Grade 6.
Does anyone have experience with Checkology modules with Grade 6 students? I would like to create a course for them including:
- What is News
- Info Zone
- Introduction to Algorithms
but wonder about the difficulty and attention required. Are these modules age-appropriate for G6?
Also, do you have any suggestions for courses/module series designed by grade level that could be spread over several years?
I feel needing assistance to develop a scaffolding approach that is not overwhelming for the students
Many thanks in advance
