Lesson: Lateral Reading vs. Vertical Reading

Rating
0.0 stars

When trying to determine who is behind online information, students may be inclined to read vertically—to make judgments based on features internal to a website like its URL, design, functionality, or content. However, these features are not effective ways to evaluate a site and need to be explicitly challenged. This lesson asks students to evaluate a website and a post on social media by engaging in both vertical and lateral reading to see how they compare.

This lesson is designed to be taught after the Intro to Lateral Reading lesson.
