Combatting Misinformation by Introducing Peer-Reviewed Journals into the Science Classroom - Livestream

In an age of misinformation, it is essential that students develop the scientific literacy and critical thinking necessary to discriminate between science and pseudoscience. Peer-reviewed journals are the most reliable source of information but are often full of intimidating jargon and have limited accessibility, while misinformation is generally free and sensationalized. In this webinar, we will explore resources and methodology for incorporating appropriate peer-reviewed journals into your science classroom. Armed with the skills necessary to decipher primary texts, your students will be better equipped to evaluate all sources of information.
