Can I Trust the Creators?

New Review

It's easy to find information at the click of a mouse, but is it trustworthy? Pupils learn about the E.S.C.A.P.E. acronym for evaluating sources. Next, learners read a news story and evaluate its sources to determine credibility. Last, scholars complete a worksheet and discuss the activity with their peers.
