Knowing what to make of topics like immigration and climate change can be tough. THINK FOR YOURSELF teaches middle schoolers how to ask questions, evaluate evidence, and consider all sides of an issue to come to a well-informed conclusion. From learning how to recognize doctored articles online to avoiding common pitfalls like stereotyping, this is a nonjudgmental and nonpartisan guide to how to think in a world dominated by fake news, social media, and divided opinions.
