a) Write the title of your section and your group's number in ( ).

b) Write a summary of the "Tip."

Title: 1.1 "Read the whole article carefully"

Message: Summary: It can be hard to find the bias, so it is important to read the entire article, not just parts of it

Example: It can take a long time to read and annotate the Factoid Friday articles.  Leave yourself plenty of time to do a good job.  Do a page each night and then do the writing when you are finished reading the entire article.  If you try to write the summary without reading the entire text, you won't be able to understand the author's argument and you might have difficulty identifying the bias.
