A reference source for myths, rumors, and misinformation
As teacher-librarians, we point students towards definitive sources of information, and teach them about the weaknesses in crowd-sourced reference works. But how do you check the veracity of a rumour? Snopes tracks the stories that flourish and lets you know which ones are based on facts and which are fiction. Many of your students may know about this site, but it will be new to some.
