The ACRL Framework Sandbox is getting a new look! Beginning June 1, 2020, we’re pausing the ability to contribute a resource, create an account, and log in to an existing account during essential site maintenance. Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to view Sandbox resources. Learn more.

Evaluate a News Story

In light of the proliferation of fake news and just plain erroneous news, this assignment tries to give students tools and strategies for evaluating the information that comes to them via social media and other outlets. Students identify one news story and thoroughly investigate it, including using CRAAP criteria, searching for other articles on the same topic, and checking factchecking sites.

News stories to evalute were updated July 2019.
