Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Credible Sources Workstations - Section 2: Workstations


My group had some wonderful discussions today. I'm so glad I pulled the articles in from yesterday because I feel like we cleared up a lot of misconceptions. I was able to really chat about credible sources and how author's cite evidence. We talked about reputable institutions and types of people that we could believe (Doctor vs. my friend) and how that can even backfire. The kids got really deep about not knowing who to trust and were begging for ways to spot false claims. I wish I could make it perfect for them!
