Representing the Doukhobors in the media
In this critical challenge, students review background information (accessed online) about the Doukhobor community in Canada in the early twentieth century. Students then examine evidence found in two newspaper articles about the Doukhobors written in 1924 to determine the extent to which each of the articles is unbiased reporting. Finally, students select one article and either rewrite it to make it a more unbiased report, or write an editorial to explain why it is a fair article.
