Teaching a Stealth Information Literacy Class on Reading The New York Times: Science

Article Pairs used in class

Groups of Articles: 

I presented the class with the following three sets of articles (each set consisted of the NYT coverage of a study, the original scientific study as published in a scholarly journal, and another news source). I had the class vote on the one that they wanted us to use in class.
