I took this very interesting talk by Emily Balcetis and put together a lesson that you might find interesting. The goals of this lesson were to:
- encourage students to do listening practice outside of class
- encourage discussion in the follow up class
- introduce the idea of assessing a speaker (my students have to give presentations so it is nice to get them looking at talks critically)
- introduce/consolidate some ways of evaluating the reliability of a source
Please let me know if you used the lesson, if you found it useful and if you have any suggestions.
