Workshop: Disinformation as discourse in the English Language Classroom
In this workshop we will present and discuss the results of our project focusing on using disinformation discourse as rich content for English language learning and developing critical thinking skills. Based on our work with high school and university students in Lithuania, the workshop will provide an overview of the methodology used to engage students in examining disinformation, show examples of the methodology in action, and discuss classroom application of various teaching tools and activities. The workshop will also showcase student work on disinformation created for the project.
