The information revolution of the 21st century is as significant and transformative as the industrial revolution of the 19th century. In this unit, students – and by proxy their families – will learn about the challenges of our current information landscape and how to navigate them. This unit is split into four modules. These modules can be done sequentially or stand on their own, depending on students’ needs and teachers’ timeframes. In this module (1 of 4), students analyze their own use of online social media platforms and learn how filter bubbles and confirmation bias shape the content of their media environment.

The Washington State History Project is a multiyear initiative that originated in 2020 with the goal of transforming how Washington state history is taught. The project brought together educators, district facilitators, cultural consultants, and local experts to create six project-based learning (PBL) units that are anti-biased, interdisciplinary, place-based, and aligned to the Washington State Social Studies Learning Standards and the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards. The course weaves together original content, multimedia resources, primary sources, and curricular materials from Since Time Immemorial: Tribal Sovereignty in Washington State, developed by Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI).
