Curriculum for Evaluating the Trustworthiness of Online Sources

Misinformation runs rampant online. How can educators help students navigate this treacherous terrain? The Stanford History Education Group’s Civic Online Reasoning (COR) curriculum features 67 free lessons and assessments that teach students the methods fact-checkers use to sort fact from fiction by evaluating the trustworthiness of online sources. The lessons and assessments that make up the curriculum provide students with opportunities to apply fact-checkers’ questions to real-world examples. Tested in classrooms, the curriculum covers topics such as using Wikipedia wisely, evaluating claims on social media, determining website reliability, and identifying trustworthy evidence. The free materials allow students to practice and learn these important skills through structured activities.

Plus: Student materials for all of the Stanford History Education Group’s Reading Like a Historian US history lessons are now available as fillable PDFs. Fillable PDFs of World history lessons will be coming soon.
