Advanced 5: Evaluating Credibility of Sources

How do discerning readers determine bias and credibility? Ask small groups to figure it out! First, each group is provided with either articles or videos that contain bias. They examine the resources, respond to included questions, and then share their findings with the class. After presenting, groups participate in a jigsaw activity for which they read and discuss articles about credibility and then share with a mixed group. Learners apply this new knowledge to their own research projects. What is credible and why? Included in the plan are several articles to read for bias and a long list of articles that pupils can read in their jigsaw groups.
