3/3/2014- Author's Bias
I can determine an author's bias based on what he does and does not say.
Do you have a pet? Do you like your pet? If so, what do you like about your pet? Is there anything that you don't like about your pet? Most of the members of our class have a pet, but not everyone. People who had pets told us about how they can play with their pets, learn responsibility from them, and have a great friend. People who didn't like pets mentioned allergies, too much responsibility, and mean pets. Today we read an article written by a pediatrician (children's doctor) and mom who says she is "not a pet person."
Read the article below and ask yourself: Does the author believe that pets are good for kids? In order to answer the question, ask yourself, "What kind of sources did the author use?" "What quotes did the author use?" "Would she use [a specific quote] if she believed that pets help kids?" "Would she use [a specific quote] is she didn't believe that pets help kids?"
