Website Subject: Reading Informational Text Level: Middle School Material Type: Homework/Assignment Author: KRISTIN PFEIFER Date Added: 11/04/2020 License: Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike Language: English Comments Marian Faulkner on Mar 22, 12:47pm Evaluation Accuracy: Limited (1) Using the Tool for Identifying Bias in Sources, we discussed how this resource does not present any harmful stereotypes; yet, it omits those students from participating who may not have an adult at home that would have the time or knowledge to be interviewed about a hurricane. It also may inadvertently leave out students new to North Carolina. Family life and social class experiences of students may impact their ability to do this activity. By adding an option to read an online interview or other hurricane related information and complete the report would make this lesson more accessible to all students.
