“Don’t believe everything you read.” Here is a good example to remember. Whether your writing is balanced or objective, you need to present both sides of the issue. Sometimes a writer expresses a strong feeling about the topic. This may cause the writing to be biased or slanted.
This mini lesson explains the importance of understanding bias and slanted pieces of writing so that student will be able to make an informed assessment and not fall into such pitfalls when writing themselves.
Students are given examples of biased writing and asked to pinpoint the imbalances. Other passages give the student a chance to revise the selection so that it becomes a balanced passage.
Great resource to use before attempting an informational or expository essay.
