Spotlight on Strategies: Myth Busting

Full Video |02:47

Myth Bustin'! is a teaching strategy that mimics the scientific inquiry model used on the popular television show, Mythbusters. Students consider statements provided by the teacher and, through the exploration of a variety of resources, determine whether the statements are fact or fiction. This strategy enables students to develop critical thinking, because they are required to examine and use evidence to support their claims.
