· Forum 5A: How do you evaluate and assess content?

Review the following items:

· The Israel-Palestine conflict: a 10-minute history

· Vox’s History of the Israeli Palestinian Conflict is Complete Garbage (from The Federalist)

On any given topic, there are in all likelihood several sources of content and information. As the production and distribution of such content becomes easier with technological advances like the internet, video streaming and free website editors, the ability to distinguish fact from political bias, opinion from misinformation, and the truth from ‘alternative facts’ becomes a critical skill.  After reviewing the content above about the Arab-Israeli conflict:

1 .Write a discussion question about the two pieces of content and how they can and should be evaluated for factualness or bias; (Don’t respond your question, only need a question no need answer!)

2 .Provide two general guidelines for others to use when evaluating and assessing content that you come across online, on social media, on television or from other sources.  (two general guidelines)

Be prepared to use your discussion question during your section meeting.  Your question should be structured as to stimulate discussion and should have open-ended answers (questions that can be answered with “yes” or “no” alone are not acceptable).

Your post is due one hour before the start of your lab section.

Your discussion question should focus mostly upon the contents of the articles, and then the guidelines you write should focus on providing tips for evaluating/assessing online content.  It is not necessary to answer your discussion question in the submission.
