This workshop will encourage a broader perspective on the meaning of the Constitution and puncture some myths. What does the chronological and political context of its creation tell us? We cover, especially, the compromises that were required to form the country. This discussion will help you determine your own views of the Constitution and evaluate current political events more thoughtfully. Presented by: Donna L Cohen, MEd, MLIS, Teacher and Librarian For more information, info@civicthinker.net Part of Civics for Adults Workshop Series: To Enhance Civic Knowledge and Inspire Political Engagement Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Civics-for-Adults-1490728887922036/?ref=bookmarks

We are overwhelmed with messages from politicians, news sources and other media. Establish truth from fiction using critical thinking strategies, and learn where to find accurate information. This workshop uses real-life examples to show how information can be, intentionally or not, distorted. Logical fallacies, political ads, news headlines, graphs and charts, the effect of language chosen to express ideas and other types of information are examined in a “what do you see here? / what is missing?” type of format. The last part is about web searching, research databases, and other strategies for finding information – in order to be your own “factchecker”.
