This is the corresponding PowerPoint for Lesson 4 of the unit Standing Up for Democracy. In this lesson, students define confirmation bias and examine why people sometimes maintain their beliefs in the face of information that contradicts their understanding.
This PowerPoint includes student-facing slides and activity instructions in the notes section for the teacher. It is intended to be used alongside, and not instead of, the lesson plan. The PowerPoint includes basic media and prompts from the lesson plan, but we expect you to adapt it to fit the needs of your students and class.
