Info Literacy

  • Seek the Truth

    seek the truth

    Let's all pledge to choose reputable sources for our news. 

    Students and teachers alike can fall into the trap of believing whatever comes over their phones or devices, whether from social media or online sources.  Seek the Truth asks us all to be discerning and responsible, to check facts and sources. 

    media bias chart

    The Media Bias Chart (from Ad Fontes Media - link above) has some information to help with that. 

    Seek the Truth pledges (and prizes) will be available in the Library soon!

    Heart is beating fast                                                                 Stuck beneath the ground,

            Crawling at you now                                                                         Look deep down and see

            Shading its terrified eyes.                                                                 A person who has no soul,

             No more sleep tonight   ~Zoe                                                          Well not anymore.   ~Diana
