MDM4U Being critical of the news 2016-05-03


Thanks everyone for our talk today, and thanks for the feedback you gave in the form I posted. I’ll read it over carefully and try to improve our class on my end, and I’m counting on you to improve our class on your end.

Tonight your homework is to read a news story about a new study, and be ready to summarize and discuss it in class tomorrow. You can look for anything you want that’s school-appropriate. The point is learning to be critical and ask good questions about information you’re receiving. You can make some written notes about the story you choose if you like. You can also read further (i.e. look for other sources of information) if you’re curious.
