Virtual Workshops

CIVIX is offering a series of professional development sessions to support bringing the CTRL-F verification skills to the classroom. Workshops will focus on guided practice using engaging examples from the CTRL-F resources.

These will be held twice monthly throughout the school year. For more information and to register, please visit this Eventbrite link.

New Videos

Using Wikipedia to investigate unfamiliar sources is a key CTRL-F skill, but we know it still gets mixed reviews. Our new Why Use Wikipedia video helps dispel some persistent myths about the crowd-sourced encyclopedia, while Wikipedia Tips & Tricks reviews the features of a Wikipedia article in order to use it most effectively.

Resources Update

We know how important it is for CTRL-F examples to be current. The CTRL-F lesson plans have been updated with new examples for the current school year.
