COR for the Science Classroom
Scientific misinformation abounds online. Improve students' ability to evaluate scientific information on the internet with these curricular materials. These lessons and tasks can be used in a variety of subject areas, but we've compiled this group of materials specifically for science educators because they present students with science-related sources.
Lateral Reading about Renewable Energy and Evaluating Evidence about Climate Change were written with the science classroom in mind. Students should learn COR skills across the curriculum, and we hope these lessons serve as proof of concept for how science teachers might incorporate Civic Online Reasoning into their classes.
