Here’s a timely exercise for teachers: Have your students search for three to five things in print about the presidential or vice presidential candidates that are false. Where did the students find such statements? Could they identify the original source? How do they know the information is false? What is their evidence? Did they ask the source to set the record straight? What does their experience tell them about these sources of information?
