These lessons provide an instructional approach to help students learn how to judge the quality of claims. They use a project-based applied learning (PAL) approach that engages students by posing questions about relevant biological issues. As students work through these projects, they are challenged to evaluate sources of information and communicate their understanding of scientific claims.
