Who has the best pizza in town? Is that a fact or an opinion? Differentiating between fact and opinion might sound simple but deciding between them in different contexts can be difficult. Learning about fact versus opinion can help students navigate information they are getting in their academic classes as well as in their peer interactions.

Students in this program will have opportunities to:

  • Discuss the differences between facts and opinions.
  • Identify facts and opinions in contextual situations.
  • Practice supporting opinions with relevant facts.
  • Recognize that others may not share your opinion and discuss appropriate / inappropriate responses.
