In our “post-truth” landscape, fake news and “alternative facts” abound. It can even be difficult getting students to agree on the standards for what qualifies as accurate, verifiable information. However, teaching students to evaluate sources and construct fact-based arguments is both more challenging and more essential than ever before. This is doubly important in the writing classroom where students are still finding their voices and honing their rhetorical and analytical skills. This panel welcomes papers that address this topic from a range of theoretical and/or empirical perspectives.
Possible topics include but are not limited to:
--successful methods for teaching students to discern opinion-based writing
