Melissa Vee Rentchler 's insight:
Good journalists regularly rely on professional librarians to research and verify content they propose to publish that goes beyond simply reporting the news. In this journalism professor's article she has several incorrect ideas to include but not be limited to: Snopes is not an authoritative site operated by professional librarians and is often incorrect; Lack of coverage may or may not mean anything but having worked with reporters myself I've noticed they will report whatever comes across the AP newsline in order to get credit for posting a report so misinformation or bias is perpetrated widely; Fully understand what "reputable" and authoritative mean; I would correct her first sentence and change the word "regularly" to oftentimes misleading; DrudgeReport is an aggregator of news sites and contains MainStreamMedia as well as many independents; GeoEngineeringWatch is not conspiracy or not authoritative but a site that needs to be read carefully as there are MANY MANY books published on weather manipulation that go back in history to previous World Wars and is simply not a well known practice by the general public.

Instructional design is the strategic creation of learning experiences through intentional planning, sequencing, and data-based revision of learning.

This process includes both the ways content is accessed, and the learning needs and objectives (and how they are determined) themselves.

This puts instructional strategies, literacy strategies, curriculum mapping, standards unpacking, assessment design, digital literacy, and a dozen other facets of education beneath its umbrella.

With that in mind, we’ve created the following 32 characteristics of higher-level instructional planning to help you spot the holes in your teaching.
