This module helps students practice and gain skills in "evaluating claims made in written accounts of environmental issues." Students evaluate an article on a current environmental topic using the following questions: "What do we accept as evidence? What is the source of the evidence? What is the relationship between "claims" and "evidence"? What is the bias and how can it be recognized?"
This 21-page guide outlines the module and includes seven sections: Module Description, Evaluation of Media Coverage of an Environmental Issue, Evaluation of Media Coverage of Forest Fires, Assessment, Notes to Instructors, Follow-Up Activity, and Resources.
The 18-page Word document is a duplicate of the PDF guide.
