Fact and Opinion

How can we separate what’s true from what someone thinks is true? How do you know whether someone is giving you solid information, or whether they’re trying to persuade you to embrace a point of view? Well, in this movie on fact and opinion, Tim and Moby break down the distinctions between these two important concepts. You’ll learn that facts are supported by evidence that everyone can agree on, while opinions are based on personal beliefs and judgments. You’ll also learn the difference between an informed opinion and an uninformed one, and how bias can blur the line between truth and fiction. So click on this movie--we promise, it’s thoroughly grounded in fact!
