Middle schoolers read two articles about the same event: "Plane from J.F.K Crashes off Canada" from the New York Times and "No Survivors from Crash of Swissair Jetliner Off Nova Scotia" from the Associated Press. They then compare the information in each. Once they find conflicting information, they discuss why the information may differ, and they showcase their findings on a poster. Finally, they write a journal entry about how certain assumptions can color one's view.
