Credo Adds Content to Help Students Understand Current Events
Credo added AllSides’ Red Blue Dictionary (300-plus entries on timely topics from multiple perspectives) and Facts On File’s Issues & Controversies (50-plus entries sharing the history, current state, and future of controversial topics) to the Real-time Reference category of its research platform to help librarians provide credible and up-to-date background information on current political topics.
“In the current climate of polarization, it can be hard for students to understand an issue when opposing sides argue using their own vocabulary,” says Ian Singer, Credo’s general manager. “Resources like the Red Blue Dictionary and Issues & Controversies reinforce strong critical thinking habits by illuminating multiple perspectives from various vantage points; empowering students to develop bias detection and argument development skills and, perhaps most importantly, to reach their own conclusions.”
