FactCheck.org – Holding Politicians Accountable
https://www.factcheck.org/

At FactCheck.org, they follow a process when they select, research, write, edit and, if necessary, correct our articles. Our topics vary slightly depending on the election cycle. In all years, we closely monitor the factual accuracy of what is said by the president and top administration officials, as well as congressional and party leaders. However, we primarily focus on presidential candidates in presidential election years, and on the top Senate races in midterm elections. In off-election years, our primary focus is on the action in Congress. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

Snopes – Internet’s Definitive Fact-Checking Resource
https://www.snopes.com/

When misinformation obscures the truth and readers don’t know what to trust, Snopes.com’s fact checking and original, investigative reporting lights the way to evidence-based and contextualized analysis. We always document our sources so readers are empowered to do independent research and make up their own minds. Snopes got its start in 1994, investigating urban legends, hoaxes, and folklore. Founder David Mikkelson, later joined by his wife, was publishing online before most people were connected to the internet. As demand for reliable fact checks grew, so did Snopes. Now it’s the oldest and largest fact-checking site online, widely regarded by journalists, folklorists, and readers as an invaluable research companion. Snopes.com is an independent publication owned by Snopes Media Group. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

Statistics in Schools: History Activities
https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/sis/activities/history.html

From the U.S. Census Bureau’s Statistics in Schools (SIS) program comes this collection of classroom history and social studies activities intended to “supplement the standard curriculum while providing useful learning tools related to real life data.” This collection features well-developed activity plans for K-12 students, each focused on a specific topic. Activities are broadly grouped into grade-level appropriate subjects: elementary grades (e.g. “Jamestown – Factors Affecting Population Change, 1630-1700”), middle school (e.g. “Where Should I Live? Using U.S. Census Bureau Data to Make Decisions”), and high school (e.g. “19th Century Immigration – Causes & Effects”). The webpage for each activity gives a description, states the time and materials required, and provides a list of learning objectives. Some activities also take advantage of the Census Bureau’s interactive digital tools, such as QuickFacts. Each lesson includes attractively designed and downloadable PDFs of teacher and student versions of the activity. This will be added to Education Resources Subject Tracer™.
