        Taming the 'Wild West' of Online Comments

        Engage your students in the conversation about the pros and cons of online commenting with this PBS NewsHour video and educational resources from April 21, 2014. More and more websites are including online commenting as a feature for their visitors, but sometimes the comment boards become venues for rudeness and insults. These comments can influence how a reader perceives the story. For further background and materials to support student understanding of the issue see the Teacher's Guide, Student Handout, and Informational Text in Support Materials.
