Correcting Misinformation Paper
First the outline
This is an assignment in two parts.
In the first part of the paper, your job is to describe the sources of misinformation you found. For each source of misinformation you found, include the following:
- What misinformation does the source present? Describe it.
- Where did you find the misinformation?
- Who is the intended audience?
- How is this misinformation potentially harmful or dangerous?
- How did you determine it was misinformation?
- Why do you think this misinformation is circulated?
In the second part of the paper, your job is to correct the misinformation you found using the higher quality sources you found.
- What is the the more accurate version of the information you’ve presented?
- What makes the sources you found more accurate?
- How is this more information circulated?
- How can it be used to correct misinformation? What should be done to make sure people get this information instead of misinformation?
You should cite a minimum of 6 sources. You must cite sources from the course and sources from your annotated bibliography. If you need one or two additional sources, that’s fine, but you shouldn’t have to do much additional research. Focus instead on creating a logical and clear argument correcting misinformation.
Your paper must be 1500 words minimum and use MLA formatting.
Before you begin writing your paper, create a sentence outline of it. Use MLA formatting for your outline. Be sure to include citations to your sources in your outline as well as a works cited page.
