Workshop - Misinformation and Political Propaganda

West Linn Library
1595 Burns Street
West Linn, OR 97068, US (map)



We are overwhelmed with messages from politicians, news sources and other media. Learn to distinguish truth from fiction using critical thinking strategies. The workshop uses real world examples of political ads, news headlines, graphs / charts, the effect of word choice in messaging, statistical data and other types of information in a “what do you see here? / what is missing?” format. The last part is about finding accurate information. The goal is to help people become their own “factchecker”.
