Abstract

There is resounding praise for incorporating current event into the social studies curriculum, but far too many classrooms go without utilizing these resources. The purpose of this project is to create a unit of mini lessons that teach students how to analyze the credibility of information, see real world examples of social science in action and connect the skills and content taught in a social science classroom back to their personal lives. This unit is designed to be easily implemented into any social science curriculum.
