Unit 4 task

  1. What are some primary-friendly “scam scenarios” that you could use in the classroom for encouraging students to critically think about messages they receive? Create your own “fake scam” to share with the community so they can try and spot the tell-tale signs!

I will have students role-playing different phone scam scenes and let them observe how people fall into fraud “trap”. There will be printed scripts for the students to read when watching their peers to act out the different scenes. Some scenes are legitimate phone calls while some are phone scams. Students will guess which is the ‘real’ phone call and which is the ‘fake’ one by identifying suspicious signs such as:
  • Receiving call from government agencies to confirm your sensitive information.
  • Informing that you were ‘selected’ for an offer or that you have won a lottery.
  • Scammers pretending to be federal agency and told that you will be arrested if you do not pay taxes or some other debt right away.
