Conspiracy Theories

It is difficult for young people to distinguish fact from fiction. Are the authorities lying to us? Is there more to the world than what we see? A sensible discussion of conspiracies can help students to better understand the world around them, and become better critical thinkers.

This worksheet is suitable for high-school or college discussion classes. It is designed to examine different sides of the issue without being judgmental.

It includes a warm-up discussion, a reading section on various conspiracy theories, a discussion section and further references.

It is expected to take 1 - 2 hours to complete this activity.
