National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science: Vaccines, Social Media, and the Public Health

From the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science comes this lesson plan that is designed to help students identify misinformation and pseudoscience regarding vaccinations. This lesson plan was authored by Kim R. Finer, a biologist at Kent State University, and is designed specifically for college undergraduates who are not science majors. This lesson may also be adapted for high school-level students. In this lesson, students are introduced to the scientific method while also learning about common characteristics of pseudoscience. Students also learn about the science behind vaccinations and the importance of herd immunity. Interested educators can download this lesson plan and accompanying notes in PDF format. Due to its focus on social media literacy, this lesson may also appeal to librarians and social studies instructors in addition to science instructors.
