Ask students why might people spread gossip? (to get attention, revenge, to draw attention away from something they did, etc.)
Two Truths and a Lie (celebrity) [the lies do not have periods at the end of the sentences, all info was gotten off IMDb]
Talk about how even flattering rumors can still hurt someone. (if you got a new video game and I told everyone, it would take away from your joy of telling people)
Talk about how spreading embarrassing truths can also hurt someone.
Talk about ways to stop/decrease spreading of rumors (ask students what they think they can do to stop the spread of rumors?)
Have students fold a paper in half for every time they agree with a statement.
