[TIPS] factcheckEd.org

This site is a repeat from a few years ago< I think. But, I just today came upon it again and it appears to have undergone some improvements. So, here it is again: http://www.factchecked.org/LessonPlans.aspx

That's the lesson plans page. Excellent lessons deisgned to do some higher level thinking skills lessons. From the site:

"FactCheckEd.org is an educational resource for high school teachers and students. It’s  designed to help students learn to cut through the fog of misinformation and deception that surrounds the many messages they’re bombarded with every day. Our site is a sister to the award-winning Annenberg Political Fact Check, which goes by the Internet address FactCheck.org. and monitors the factual accuracy of what is said in the nation’s political arena."

Check out both sites. This is good stuff.
