Hi folks,


Here is what's coming up next week. I'm in the extended metro area.


Misinformation, Fake News and Political Propaganda 

We are overwhelmed with messages from politicians, news sources and other
media. Learn to distinguish truth from fiction using critical thinking
strategies. The workshop uses real world examples of political ads, news
headlines, logical fallacies, graphs / charts, the effect of word choice in
messaging, statistical data and other types of information in a "what do you
see here? / what is missing?" type of format. The last part is about finding
accurate information. The goal is to help people become their own
