PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Let's face it: Living in a digital world has resulted in easy access to more biased information than ever before. The uncomfortable truth is that most authors -- including those writing for major news services like Fox News and CNN -- often have an opinion about the topics that they are tackling that is advanced in their text.

One way that authors advance their own opinion is by including quotes from experts in an attempt to convince readers to buy into their core positions. To combat that in my classroom, I ask students to use this handout to carefully examine the individual quotes that have been included in a heavily slanted current event. My goal is to show students that you can't buy into the suggestion that someone is an expert worth believing until you know just who that person is.

The preview version of this handout is a PDF. The for purchase version is a Word Doc that you can edit.
