Are you familiar with “fact checking sites”? They’re independent sources that evaluate the truthfulness of information. This activity will ask you to review the different sites and then choose a topic to research and write about in a discussion post. Here are the directions. 

1.    You have just visited several fact-checking sites.  Reflect on what you observed as you briefly explored the web sites.  If you skipped that activity, go back one page for the links.  

2.  Select one rumor, statement, event, or “news” story that you have recently heard about or that you see listed on one of the sites-e.g., is it true that masks prevent the spread of COVID-19?  Was the moon landing real?  You can choose a story you have heard about or you can select one of the topics discussed on a fact-checking site.   https://webliteracy.pressbooks.com/chapter/fact-checking-sites/

3.  Write a post that is approximately 250 words in which you report on the story you investigated;

  • what news item or statement did you research or read about in-depth and why?
  • why are you interested in this topic or why is it important?  Why do you think some people might want to believe that the story is real?;
  • what do you think about the fact-checking sites?  Are they useful?  Have you used them before?  Would you recommend them?  If so, how would you describe them to a friend?
