06/03/20 - 06/24/20 (4 weeks)

In this short course, we will look at news articles and cartoons, and how strategic vocabulary can influence the audiences beliefs about a subject. We will then take the same data, from the same article, and using the same techniques as the media, influence the audience to think in the opposite direction.  Students will learn to look at news and information with an objective lens, and to research the data and come to an independent conclusion. Recommended ages 10+.
