    Testing Claims Testing Claims Document Transcript

    • 1 TESTING CLAIMS Claim Testers All of us are constantly presented with “claims,” statements that others tell us are true. These may be written, spoken, or just part of our everyday understanding of the world. Throughout this big history course you’ll be asked to consider different claims about different topics. One way to validate these claims is by using all four claim testers: authority, evidence, intuition, and logic. In this activity, we’ll use these claim testers themselves to examine the whole process of claim testing. Use this “ballot card” to vote on the truth of each statement and to make notes as to why you believe something is true, false, or needs more information to fairly decide. Claim testers are a way to evaluate what you read and hear. TRUE FALSE NEED MORE INFO WHY DO YOU THINK THAT? (Which claim testers did you use: authority, evidence, intuition, logic?)
