Think like a Fact Checker: It has become increasingly important to examine the information we consume and the sources we expose ourselves to. The use of social media as a news outlet has made information evaluation more necessary. To uncover the truthfulness of a story we sometimes use fact checking websites that we trust. However, have you wondered how fact checkers verify the facts? In this workshop you will learn about ways fact checkers ascertain a story’s credibility. Understand how information is more than simply bad sources vs. good sources. In addition, you will learn the art of lateral reading and place those skills to the test!
