It is our hope that the successful student who completes a class using all or some of this text will have improved skills with application inside the discipline of philosophy, but also with application to work in other disciplines within academia. Our ultimate goal, however, is to help people develop techniques which support curiosity, open-mindedness, and an ability to collaborate successfully with others, across differences of experiences and background. Our dream is to help people “put their heads together.”

In 2016, Oxford Dictionaries chose "post-truth" as the word of the year. As literacy has shifted from published hardcopy to an online landscape, it is more important than ever to engage and empower students in navigating the complicated battleground of fake news verses responsible, fact-based news. In this multi-day lesson, students will 1) examine terms associated with “fake news” and evaluate sources for their reliability and authenticity, and 2) develop a set of norms for responsible use of online news sources that spans academic and personal interaction with media.Cover image: "Fake news" by pixel2013 from Pixabay.com

Geoffrey Kenmuir - Passaic County Community College. This assignment prepares first-year students to perform academic research. Specifically, by working with a complex text such as the US Constitution, they will be required to write summaries (articles), paraphrases (definitions), and create a Works Cited Page that adheres to MLA standards. By developing these fundamental skills they will have an opportunity to self-assess their abilities, and realize which research skills are lacking, and which are strong.
