Description:

Ask students to research the "truth" behind statements from recent news articles and provide their opinion about what is "true". These assignments can be done as often as the instructor feels appropriate. I tend to use them once every few weeks or when I come across an interesting or questionable "statement of fact" in the media. Examples include statements about increases in hurricane intensity/storminess due to global warming, or perhaps something as general as the Coriolis effect and toilet flush direction, etc.
