Educators can find instructional materials for essential topics such as:

  • Arguments and evidence
  • Conspiratorial thinking
  • Evaluating claims
  • Misinformation
  • Understanding bias
  • Fact checking

The student-facing portion of the Understanding Bias lesson plan includes an interactive slideshow with videos, survey questions, and helpful media. A free teacher account is necessary to access some of the resources and to use the teacher dashboard.
