Research Telephone: Calling All Chocolate Lovers

Book Chapter

Abstract

Just as silly messages get distorted when playing the classic game of “telephone,” scientific research can get distorted when it goes from a scholarly publication to university press release and then out to the popular media. This activity asks students to trace a scientific claim back to the original source while evaluating what distortions may have been introduced in the process.
