#LateralReading #InformationLiteracy #CRAAPTest #UniversityStudents
As a librarian at Oregon State University I sometimes use a lateral reading exercise coupled with the CRAAP test to provide students with a clear method for vetting information sources. In this short session I will demonstrate the exercise. I will briefly explain the practice of lateral reading, then distribute a paper copy of the CRAAP test and explain how to use it for the purposes of the exercise, and finally distribute a link to a news article. We will then work through the activity as a group.
- Participants will have hands-on experience using lateral reading and the CRAAP test to vet a news article.
- Participants will leave with a lesson plan and activity that they can implement with their community of learners.
- Some participants will be motivated to create and improve Wikipedia articles about newspapers and other information sources.
Duration (without Q&A)
Participants will need access to wifi. I will need to project a slideshow.

- Matthewvetter (talk) 14:48, 24 June 2022 (UTC) Very interested and have written a little about Wikipedia and lateral reading/ethical assemblages. Connects well with my own proposal too.
- @MatthewvetterNow I have to ask. What is an "ethical assemblage"? Bridges2Information (talk) 06:22, 27 June 2022 (UTC)
