Title: NCSR: Evaluation of Media Coverage of an Environmental Issue
Associated File: Evaluation of Media Coverage of an Environmental Issue.pdf
Evaluation of Media Coverage of an Environmental Issue.doc
Creator: Cudmore, Wynn
Publisher: Northwest Center for Sustainable Resources
Description: This module provides students some skills and practice in evaluating claims made in written accounts of environmental issues. These accounts appear routinely in the popular and scientific media which the public generally accepts as objective and factual. However, reports, especially in popular media, are frequently sensationalized or exaggerated and there is often reason to suspect bias. Students in natural resource and environmental science programs, in particular, should learn to critically evaluate these reports. This activity is designed to provide the opportunity to develop and practice those skills required to evaluate claims made in written accounts relating to environmental issues.
