Borderline Cases/ Conspiracy Theories Introduction
This project is about trying to find the crazy truth in this world. Who should you trust? During the process of this project were gonna be investigating fake news, looking at how to tell whether or not a source is real.
When we first started this project, Dr.P created a hoax website talking about how the school was haunted and how the spirits were still surrounding our school. So as a group we had to figure out whether or not the website was real. During our process we went through each piece of evidence he had an tried to tell where he found the information and the pictures he took. Our grouped figured out that Dr.P had just made this website up him self because most of the pictures he took were from an art piece at school. And we looked more into his evidence about the dead guy and even though there was a story on it, he had just took some information from it and made it his own.
My own Hoax
Dr.P had us with our partner create our own hoax and we had to present to the class what we were planning to do. Darrica and I made up a story about that Mr.Ray had started to create his own army of students, and that's why he would dress code people to mark them. He has a basement in his house and that's where he did his experiments. Even though out story didn't get chosen we still had a fun time creating fake stories.
Before we started to do our own conspiracy stories, we researched a conspiracy theory that was going on already,
