Lateral Reading: Evaluating Online Information Like a Fact Checker
With changes to the news cycle and information overload, the latest advice from researchers and experts is that educators across the curriculum teach students lateral reading, a method that professional fact checkers use. How exactly do we guide students to read laterally? Go beyond outdated advice about evaluation based on website domains and “about us” pages. Join us as we demonstrate new, practical approaches to evaluating online information that we have developed and practiced with students.
