Who is - 27 views

    Authority. Authenticity. Ownership. Perspective. These four pillars make up the critical facets of the information we consume -- and understanding them makes us and our students wiser users of information.

    However, on the web, people often make assumptions about the authority and authenticity of information, and it can be challenging to understand ownership and perspective. The Glean Who-Is Tool help you and your students learn to investigate web-based content sources. By using technical information about websites ("whois"), along with historical and factual information, the tool encourages us to dig more deeply, to understand more thoroughly, and to critique more closely.

    Wikipedia Manual of Style - words to watch for. Excellent treatment of language that can signal bias, racist content, editorializing and other linguistic flags.
