For homework, please find a viral post (news story, video or meme) on social media that you think is inaccurate or untrue. Post a link to the post and explain why you think it's not true. Can you answer these questions from the crap test?
Currency: How current (recent) is the post?
Reliability: Are there references or sources included?
Authority: Who posted this? Are they an expert on the subject?
Point of View: Is this fact or opinion? Is it biased?
Next week we will have a short vocabulary quiz to finish up the semester. Please don't miss this class!
