Project Introduction

The aim of this project is for students to weigh the facts and test the evidence behind online news stories that are current in Ireland and publish their findings on their own news website.


Being able to source reliable information about what is going on in your country is an important element of being an active and informed citizen for our students and this involves questioning how different media outlets cover the topic, from the style of language used to the reliability of their facts. They express their understanding by writing an article explaining their findings about the news story they have chosen to investigate.

Learner Profile
