Engaging students

We want to identify and create classroom exercises to give students the tools to distinguish between assertion and verification in news and other messages.

We want to identify and create classroom exercises to give students the tools to distinguish between assertion and verification in news and other messages. We’ll focus on online sources as well as traditional news reports. These exercises can be games, role-playing or group activities, based inside or outside the classroom. If, as a teacher, journalist or student you have such exercises to recommend, please share them in the comment section at the bottom of this page.
