The "World Times" is a set of newspaper articles handed out in the World War One Simulation. The Article on the Assassination of the Archduke Francis Ferdinand is the catalist that starts the simulation. After the newspaper is passed out to all the countries, Serbia and Austria-Hungary are assigned to write public statements to be read to the class the next period (1914). The conditions are set for war! http://www.historysimulation.com/WorldWarI.html #SSchat #HistoryTeacherchat
Fact checking has its origin in the early 20th century, when magazines began to verify statements made in non-fictional texts prior to publication. This practice increases credibility and trustworthiness of articles and documents.
