Understanding Bias

Today we will talk about evaluating sources and understanding bias. Using the "community of interpretation" that was assigned to your group, determine which of the three statements below is a "lie."

  1. Self-driving cars are good for the economy.
  2. Self-driving cars are safe to operate.
  3. Self-driving cars need a lot of regulation.

Use the following sources to help you make your decision. Remember to be thinking in the mindset of your assigned community - for this activity, try not to let your own personal opinions influence your discussion!

Use the Google Spreadsheets below to answer some questions as you evaluate each source.
