I designed this project for my Regular and AP Government students. This project helps them identify how the media injects bias in its reporting. The students will identify one topic (person, event, etc.) and think about how they feel about that topic and how they came to know about the topic (parents, friends, social media, etc.). Then they will read about that topic from four different sources (we made a chart in class of conservative, middle, and liberal sources...they cannot get four liberal sources or four conservative sources). The objective for this is for them to identify how one topic can be reported differently (bias). The project is KeyNote or PowerPoint. Any questions let me know.
Student Instruction sheet (with a brief handout that includes some things to look for when analyzing bias in sources), project guidelines (what to put on slides and how many), and grade checklist.
