Why are people so influenced by false information, even when they know better? We are joined by researcher Nikita Antonia Salovich to discuss her recent work on evaluative mindsets, and how we can apply on-going work to how we handle information in the classroom.
Later, we discuss Culturally Responsive Science Teaching – and how teachers can better cultivate sociopolitical consciousness with students.
