The rise of the internet has certainly led to a proliferation of false news stories and social media posts/pages. Fake news's profile has only risen as more organizations describe legitimate news sources as false when they don't like what is being said, leading to further confusion for students regarding who to believe. This roundtable looks at how to effectively educate first-year students on credible research methods, such as how to vet web sources and disseminate biased news reporting. The priority should be on recent examples to provide a practical context on the subject.

The conference is through the Northeast Modern Language Association and will take place March 21-24th, 2019 in Washington, D.C.

In our binge-mode culture, TV has become students’ preferred access point to critical thinking. Most college students do not see themselves in canonical texts or feel confident with analysis. Yet, students are typically employing skills of argumentation an analysis in dissecting shows on television, Netflix, and/or Hulu. Even though intellectual discussions, like the ethics around NBC’s The Good Place, occur on podcasts and cultural criticisms online, instructors often cast these opportunities aside as less than tertiary. However, these “alternative” discourse spaces often mirror the level of engagement instructors want to see in the argumentative papers their students write for composition and literature-focused classes.
