likely to be a ‘good information’ sources as their advice is based purely on facts. Based on this information Danny can make an informed decision. However Danny’s friend ‘Joe’ is likely to give poor information as his advice is based purely on his biased opinion. It is in his interest that Danny does not go to college or work so he has someone to hang around with. The information clearly has no factual basis and does not help create a positive outcome for Danny.) 10. Once all of the cards are placed on the spectrum ask the group the following: How important is it to consider where information is coming from? Is it important for it to be based on fact? Should the person giving the advice be giving information that is neutral/independent or is biased by their vested interest? 11. Summarise with the group that when we are problem solving we not only have to think about what questions we ask but who we ask. 12. Link this to the previous problem situations. Discuss why it would be important to get information from a variety of sources? What are the dangers of jumping to conclusions? Point out that we could get pulled into problems that aren’t ours to solve or a high priority for us if we listen to poor or biased information. Learning Points: Exploring the difference between fact and opinion. To make a good decision it is important to gather information that is independent, based on fact and is reliable. The best way to explore information is to judge the source. Ideally those who are neutral/independent and have based their information on facts are the most useful sources of information when problem solving. 105

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
