E103: Teaching Students to Distinguish Evidence From Argument

Track C: (Lincoln)  —  Internet@Schools – Monday 23 October 
12:30 – 13:30

When students pick up a nonfiction text, they tend to approach it either as offering an opinion or presenting evidence. In reality, sources contain both elements. Library instruction often assumes that when students evaluate sources, they naturally know how to distinguish between the two. Join our speakers for this hands-on session, where you can share your practices and explore new ways to teach this critical skill that often gets lost in the shuffle.
