We live in a digital world where we have access to news at our fingertips. But how do we evaluate these sources to make sure they are reliable and trustworthy? Mr. Hendricks’ students are analyzing new sources for bias and accuracy by examining news websites. Media literacy provides students with skills that will help them think critically about media, helping them develop into active consumers of information.

Check out these OHS students diving into an activity to determine their Core Values! Our values orient, drive, and anchor us. We experience integrity when we act in alignment with them. These students were challenged to think about how their core values help them make decisions, connect with others, and expand their resilience.

Wikipedia.org is where millions of people stop first for information. Tools like it are what make the internet so valuable. But they also teach an important lesson, one you can start teaching your kids now: don’t believe everything you read. Family Tip Sheet: bit.ly/OlyNMFR2

The OHS National Honor Society partnered with the counseling department and PBIS Team to host a “De-Stress Fest” on Dec 17th. This event allowed students and teachers to devote time to practicing healthy stress-reducing activities as the end of the semester approaches. The event included: A therapy dog, yoga, dancing challenge, holiday games, free treats, coloring, board games, and athletic events. The students were wonderful and appreciative of having time to de-stress. A special thank you to Mrs. Hapgood and Mrs. Steve for all of your work and leadership! You do an awesome job empowering our student leadership at OHS. We are thankful for you!

Tip #5: Choose a Variety of Sources. Show your children how you get news and information from different places, and explain how you make your choices. Use words like "credible," "trustworthy," "respected," and "fair." Ask them where they get their information, and if they think about those same words when choosing. As kids get older, introduce the ideas of bias, satire, and clickbait.

Fake News Tips
If a picture's worth a thousand words, do the words always tell a true story? One way to find out is through a reverse image search. Search with an image instead of a keyword and see what you discover!

Reverse Image Search
Tip #4: Play "Should You Share?" Talk through the kind of content you and your tween or teen pass along to friends online. What types of things do you like to share? Do you always check to make sure something is true before you share it? How do emotions factor into your decisions to share things? Have you ever shared something and later found out it wasn't true?

Tip #3: Explore Different Sides of a Story! Use real-life examples to help kids understand how people can view the same situation with totally different perspectives. One child might experience a game on the playground as fun, while another might feel like the rules are unfair. Sibling conflict can be a great example of how two people can have wildly different opinions about the same event. With older children, talk through controversial subjects and take turns arguing for different sides to help kids understand various viewpoints.
