Explore the potential for bias in the news and in scholars' own attitudes and opinions. Begin with a quiz on youth crime to see how learners perceive crime among their peers. After looking at the correct answers, put individuals in groups of six and assign a different media source to each group. Observers monitor their news sources, summarize stories, and look for examples of bias. Present findings to the class and engage in discussion altogether.
