"In this text, we will explore the fundamental physical, chemical, geological, and biological features and processes of the
oceans and review how humans have studied the oceans. We will discuss the range of resources that the oceans provide for us, and the pollution and other impacts that result from human use of the oceans and exploitation of their resources. We will also examine the direct and indirect effects of climate change, not just on human civilization and natural ecosystems but also on the fundamental chemistry of the global ocean that pose a long-term threat
of the extinction of many ocean species"--Introduction.

Web Literacy for Student Fact-Checkers

Rating

The web gives us many strategies and tactics and tools, which, properly used, can get students closer to the truth of a statement or image within seconds. For some reason we have decided not to teach students these specific techniques. As many people have noted, the web is both the largest propaganda machine ever created and the most amazing fact-checking tool ever invented. But if we haven't taught our students those capabilities is it any surprise that propaganda is winning?

This is an unabashedly practical guide for the student fact-checker. It supplements generic information literacy with the specific web-based techniques that can get you closer to the truth on the web more quickly.
