This book is being co-created by students in Plymouth State University’s First Year Seminar (Sections 10 and 11) as we speak. It’s a bit of a mess right now but as it comes together, we think you will find some useful information about fake news and what we can do about it. Cathie LeBlanc ( is the editor of the book but all of the material is being created by undergraduate students in their first year of college.

The book is in progress. Please excuse our mess as we create, remix, and revise things.
