Can Your Students Spot Falsehoods? Practical Lessons on Web Analysis

Do your students know how to tell if a website is credible for research? Are you overwhelmed by the sheer variety of materials available for this topic? Don’t know where to start? Determining credible web resources is a skill that all students need, but with all of the possible variations on this idea, it can be challenging to find the most practical solution. In this session, introductory lessons on how to have 6-12 students spot false versus truth sharing websites from a social science perspective will be demonstrated, and discussed. Reflections from the real world implementation of these lessons will be shared in a collaborative conversation. Free handouts of lesson templates, and student workspace templates will be provided.

Learning Objectives

By attending this session, attendees will be able to teach a lesson on website credibility with their 6-12 students using examples of false and truthful websites.
