Description

This lesson gives students aged 13–16 an opportunity to explore if the claims that they see, read, and hear are true, using evidence as the gold standard to evaluate those claims. Through the lesson we encourage them to ask for evidence. The lesson will help teenagers develop their critical thinking and questioning skills.
