What the Fact?! Teaching Guide

Posted by Pulitzer Center on December 6, 2022

Navigate misinformation and strengthen media literacy skills with this teaching guide to accompany What the Fact?! a book by Pulitzer Center grantee, Dr. Seema Yasmin.

This teaching guide contains chapter summaries and classroom activities that bring to life the concepts and anecdotes you’ll discover in What the Fact?! With exercises that put readers in the hot seat as social media bosses and newsroom editors, this guide includes activities that explore the impact of social media algorithms, investigate the way our biases impact our beliefs, and offers step-by-step instructions for effectively debunking myths. There are games that build mental resilience and protect against falling for false information so that we can “BS-proof” our brains.

Learn more about the book and view the guide.
