Due for Class

Read

Section I (Chapters 1, 2, and 3) AND “How DigiPo Defines a Fact” (in the Back Matter) in Web Literacy for Students, Mike Caulfield, 2017, CC BY 4.0

Submit

Two questions or comments you have regarding this reading. No parameters, really – just make sure you’re addressing something from the reading.

Submit your questions/comments via the Fact-Checking Comments/Questions form (requires sign-in).

Each question/comment submitted on-time will receive 5 points (total of 10 points). Late question/comments will see points deducted at my discretion (later submission = more points lost 😳).
