Learning Goal: I’m working on a writing question and need support to help me learn.



Here are the possible ways to get points (20 pts max):

  2. Post your reflections on what you learned AND what you would like to know more about (4 pts per topic, 1 paragraph each, 12 points max)
  3. Respond to others: Take an substantive effort at correcting or concurring and expanding on the information they learned or answering the question(s) they want to know more about – this will start the conversation for the class! (2 pts per substantive response, 6 points max.)

Submission Instructions

Complete this assignment in Microsoft Word and submit you work in TWO ways:

1. Copy and Paste your post as a Reply to this Discussion Board – this will allow you to discuss your ideas with others in the class. Unfortunately, to prevent copying from others, we can only grade your first post and that post cannot be edited, so make sure your response is complete before you submit!

2. Also upload your Word document to Turnitin using the Canvas UPLOAD page immediately following this Discussion Board in the Weekly Module. This upload does not need to include your responses to others. Canvas submits your document to Turnitin for you, where a report will be generated that highlights any potential unoriginal text compared to documents available on the internet, many print journals, and the database of other papers submitted in this and previous

3 In today’s world, we are all constantly bombarded with a firehose of information through our phones and laptops. Some of this information is accurate but some is not accurate at all! How do we distinguish between “good” information and “bad” information, especially if we aren’t experts in that particular field? (Confession: We climate scientists also deal with this when it comes to non-climate related information)

For this extra credit assignment, you can play a game (available on smartphone or laptop) called “Cranky Uncle” and write a recap/review of the game.

Cranky Uncle uses cartoons and quizzes to help you practice identifying common misinformation tactics that are used to misinform the public. This will help you more quickly and effectively “call BS” when you read or hear incorrect information, not only with respect to climate change but also for other science-related issues. In today’s overwhelming information environment, that’s a really important skill to have!


Download the “Cranky Uncle” game through any of the three following means:

Once you’ve opened up the game, enter in the group code “OSUSUS103” to access the game.

Then play the game! Go through each misinformation technique (fake experts, logical fallacies, etc.) and answer the quiz questions as you go. Play until you’ve acquired at least 500 “cranky points” (should take you no more than 30 min), then follow the submission directions below.

Note: the game should save your progress if you are using the same device, so you can log out of the game and log back in later and it’ll pick up where you left off.

Here’s a video walk-through of the game to help you navigate:

What to Submit

1. Proof of participation: Use the image icon at the top of the Reply Box to attach a screenshot of the game’s progress screen (see example below) that you played the game and received at least 500 cranky points. (Note: If you do not attach this screenshot, you will not receive any points for this assignment!

2. Write about and post your experience playing the “Cranky Uncle” game (200-400 words). Some examples of what you could write about include (but are not limited to): (max 15 pts – only given if you attach screenshot)

  • How effective do you think the game was in helping you identify misinformation tactics when they are used in social media, conversations with friends/family, etc.?
  • What aspects of the game made it effective or ineffective?
  • To what extent was the game app interesting, engaging, or fun?
  • Would you recommend this game to other students in the class and/or to future
